Justin Villalona

The Washburn softball team went 1-1 in the Fort Hays State Softball Crossover as they played Wayne State in game one and Rogers State in game two.

Washburn was up the whole game against Wayne State as they scored three runs in the first-inning, five runs in the fourth-inning and one in the sixth-inning.

Since it was a double-header they only played six innings in the two games. The first win for Washburn went to junior Megan Deiter, putting her at 4-0 on the year so far.

The three runs scored in the first inning was a three-run homer by junior Taylor Kirk scoring in junior Samantha Stallbaumer who was walked and junior Emilee Baker who hit a single in the frame.

After the Wildcats scored a run in the fourth-inning, Washburn the came back and scored five runs in the same inning.

They sent twelve batters up to the plate in that inning. After freshman Morgan Henry walked and Stallbaumer reached on a fielder’s choice, back to back RBI singles by Baker and a two RBI single by senior Alyssa Carney followed by an RBI double by Moore pushed the Ichabods to an 8-1 lead.

Deiter allowed only one hit in the game while striking out 13 and only walking two batters.

Baker finished with only three hits and Kirk drove in three runs.

Game two was a complete blow out by Rogers State as they scored 12 runs and held Washburn to an empty score.

The Ichabods couldn’t get any love as they just only had one hit and it was by Stallbaumer in the fourth-inning.

The Hillcats were on fire and so were their bats as they scored five runs in the first-inning, then scored three more in the second-inning and four in the third-inning as they just cruised to the 12-0 win.

The Loss was given to senior Kelsee Henry as her record on the year is 4-1.

The Ichabods’ next game is at 1 p.m. Feb. 28  which is a doubleheader against Newman University at Washburn.
