Softball Stays Hot

Tori Harding

The Saints entered the day on quite the streak, and they kept it going with two quality wins over Gannon University (JV) and South Suburban College. 

Against their familiar foe, the Saints took an early 5-0 lead through three innings before giving up 3 runs in the sixth inning. Behind a strong outing for Cheyenne Hindman, the Saints were able to close it out to earn a 7-3 victory. Cheyenne Hindman tossed a full game, giving up 3 runs, on 7 hits, while striking out 10 Gannon hitters. 

The offensive production came from bats swung by Hannah Davis and Rachel Shaheen. Davis and Shaheen combined for 6 RBI's for the Saints. Seirra Reid also had 2 hits in the win. 

The Saints looked to continue their hot start in the afternoon, as they squared off against South Surburban College. Seirra Reid, who pitched a complete game, also sparked the Saints offensively cashing in a 3 run triple. From the circle Reid gave up 3 runs (1ER) on 3 hits while striking out 4. 

Three Saints had multi hit games to lead the Saints. Wilmari Guzman, Cheyenne Hindman, and Asja Johnson each went 2 for 4 from the plate. 

With the wins, the Saints move to 11-2 overall and look to continue the streak on Saturday against Jackson College and Muskegon CC.
