Softball squad wins nine of 10 games
The Stars have played a number of doubleheaders since returning from Florida, and have been stringing together some impressive wins.
“Since we’ve been back in Michigan we’re 9-1,” Head Coach Marc Kibby said.
On April 1, the Stars played a doubleheader against Ancilla College in Indiana. They won the first game, 8-0, as well as the second game, 5-1. In the first game, Alex Cender and Emilie Pritzer got three hits each, and Cheyenne Wallace added two.
“We hit the ball well down at Ancilla,” Kibby said.
The Stars also won both games against Lake Michigan on April 6. The first game’s score was 12-0, and the second was closer at 8-5.
The next day, LCC played a doubleheader against Kalamazoo Community College. The Stars lost the first game 5-1 but won the second 10-8.
On April 8, the team had a lot of success against Kellogg Community College. They won both games, 8-4 and 16-6.
Alex Cender hit a grand slam, and was two-for-three. Hannah Knight hit two home runs, and Morgan Harmon hit the first home run of her career.
The Stars hit seven home runs that day, Kibby said.
Through the April 8 contest, the Stars were 11-7 overall and 7-1 in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association.
The team plays again Tuesday, April 15 at Jackson Community College.
“Our defense needs to toughen up for the Jackson game,” Kibby said. “The weather’s been hard on the pitchers. They’ve been inside a lot and need to get used to pitching outside again.”
