WBC Earns Split With Columbia
The Lady Eagles softball team split a doubleheader Thursday with league-leading Columbia College. Williams won the first game 4-3, but dropped the second contest 9-1 in American Midwest Conference action.
In the first game, WBC’s Karisa Hendrix allowed only one earned run in seven innings. She had 12 strikeouts and two walks, scattering four hits. Kim Emmons was the hero at the plate, hitting a two run single in the bottom of the seventh to end the game and give the Lady Eagles the win.
Errors took their toll in the nightcap, with WBC allowing four unearned runs. Emmons pitched four innings and allowed three earned runs. Ashley Boyles his a solo home run, accounting for William’s only run of the game.
As a result of Thursday’s games, WBC is now one game behind conference leaders Columbia and McKendree. The Lady Eagles have been receiving votes in the NAIA top 25 softball poll, and would be ranked 33rd currently if the poll were extended.
The Lady Eagles host Harris-Stowe for a conference doubleheader Monday at 2:00 p.m., and then they will host makeup games with Hannibal-LaGrange, also an AMC foe, Tuesday at 2:00 p.m.
