BOX SCORE <http://www.letuathletics.com/boxscore.aspx?path=softball&id=2459>

LETU takes the final game of the American Southwest Conference series against Concordia Texas with the score of 5-2 to complete their first sweep of the season and earn their fifth consecutive victory.

The Jackets got a jump on the Tornados in the second inning when junior Bailey Woodard <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3211> knocked a homerun over the right field wall to collect two RBIs and take the 2-0 lead. Freshman Alyssa Pierce <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3215> followed by beating the throw by the shortstop to earn a base hit single but was unable to be brought home.

LETU was able to seal the win in the sixth inning when Tornado errors helped the Jackets bring three more across. Big hitters during the inning were freshman Taylor MacKenzie <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3223> and Woodard when they recorded singles to move runners into scoring position. MacKenzie collected her first RBI as a YellowJacket with her single to left field.

Freshman Shelby Youngblood <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3224> gained a base off an error that brought two more Jackets home and extended the lead to 5-1.

The Tornados attempted a comeback in the top of the seventh inning when they brought one home to cut the lead to 5-2, but the YellowJackets did quick work to end the game.

Sophomore transfer Faith Genoway <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3413> made it back to the circle today to finish off the sweep for the Jackets. The Lake Jackson, Texas product allowed two runs on three hits and collected two strikeouts in her seven-inning effort. Genoway improves to 4-4 on the season after the wins against Concordia Texas.

“Faith continued her recent dominance on the mound mixing up speed and locating her pitches well to hold down CTX,” said head coach Stan Wells <http://www.letuathletics.com/coaches.aspx?rc=419> on the sophomore’s performance in the series finale.

Junior Woodard dominated at the plate today, having a perfect game going 2-for-2 with a home run and a single. She also recorded two RBIs and two runs to go with her outstanding performance.

“Bailey is starting to get it going and had a 2-run shot in the second to give us an early lead. Then in the sixth, we got three huge at-bats off the bench from Taylor, Jess, and Shelby that gave us enough insurance to get the dub. I’m very proud of the team to buy into finishing the games one pitch at a time,” said Wells.

The YellowJackets improve to 8-12 overall and 4-11 in conference play after the Tornado sweep.

LETU softball will return to the field on Tuesday, March 14th when they host Schreiner University for a non-conference doubleheader. First pitch is set for 5 p.m. at the Joyce Family Athletic Village with game two to follow.

In game two, the YellowJackets shut out the Tornados 4-0. A hot first-inning for the Jackets provided the momentum for the game when they brought three runs across.

Judd reached on an error to start off the inning, and a sacrifice bunt from senior Courtney Matulis <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3208> moved Judd into scoring position. Matulis proved dangerous at the plate once again when she hit a single to put Judd at third.

Freshman Shelby Barrick <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3217> moved runners with her RBI double to left field, scoring Judd. The Jackets went up 3-0 when junior Bailey Woodard <http://www.letuathletics.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=3211> blasted one to right field to pick up two RBIs.
