[March 22, 2012]  The Lady Lynx softball team played hard during their first home game Wednesday evening as Lincoln defeated Millikin JV 8-6 behind the pitching efforts of Jordyn Steiner (2-0). Steiner allowed eight hits and struck out three with no walks.

HardwareOutstanding hitting efforts came from Lohgan Bryant, who went 2 for 4 with two doubles; Christi Dixon, 2 for 3 with a single and double; and Jessica Dorgan, 3 for 3 with a single and two doubles.

The second game was a constant battle until the Lady Lynx scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning. The final score was Lincoln 15, Millikin JV 14. Jana Wright (2-1) earned the win, making a reappearance in the top of the seventh inning.

Casey Barretts led the Lynx offense by hitting two home runs, in the third and fifth innings, a double and five RBIs. Others contributing to the win offensively were Darrian Chrzanoski, 2 for 3 with two singles and a double; Rachel England, 3 for 4 with two singles and a double; and Gretchen Stenger, 2 for 4 with a double and single.

Lincoln coach Crystal Wurth commented:

"Overall we had a really good hitting day. The girls compiled 28 hits in 13 innings, so I am extremely happy with our offensive efforts. Our bats are what won the game for us. We had solid hits in key moments of the games. The girls were relaxed and having fun playing in front of a home crowd. Two wins! It was a good day! LC is now 6-4."
