Softball Outscores Opponents 24-2
PITTSBURG, Kan.-A grand slam by Jennifer Bohle, two strong pitching performances and a four-hit effort by Casey Carper highlighted day one of the PSU/MSSU Crossover Tournament Friday. Northwest beat Newman 9-1 and Oklahoma Panhandle State 15-1 in a pair of short-inning games.
Bohle went 2-for-3 with the slam against the Newman Jets, who Northwest beat 3-2 to cap last weekend's Southeastern Oklahoma State Tournament. It was the first multi-hit game of the season for Bohle, who tied Tiffany Carter for the Bearcat lead in home runs with three.
The Bearcats scored in each of the first four innings. Carter scored two with a double in the second inning. Lauren Peters went 3-for-4 in recording her first multi-hit game.
Nicole Ackelson, who recorded her first collegiate win against Newman last week, improved to 2-0 after pitching a complete-game, six-hitter. Ackelson struck out two and walked none. An RBI double by Jill May in the second inning plated the Jets lone run.
Carper set career highs for hits (4), RBIs (3) and runs (4) in her 4-for-5 effort against Oklahoma Panhandle State. She doubled and scored in the first inning and singled and scored in the fourth and twice in a nine-run sixth inning for the Bearcats (5-7).
Northwest had seven of its 13 hits in the sixth inning. The Lady Aggies had four hits total. Nine different Bearcats recorded a hit and scored a run.
Nicole Krueger (2-4) struck out eight in her complete-game effort. She faced the minimum through the first three innings.
