[March 23, 2017]    The chilly spring afternoon did not stop the Lady Lynx hot bats on Wednesday as they defeated Carl Sandburg College twice to sweep the home double-header. The Lady Lynx crushed the Chargers in the first game 24-3. LC scored 6 runs to capture the lead in the first inning and kept on adding to their run total in each inning of play.


The Lynx had 20 hits in the five innings played including a pair of 3-for-3 performances from freshman Kiya Harper (double, two base hits: 3 RBI), and sophomore Kenzie Cooper from Lincoln (double, two base hits: 4 RBI). Senior Erin Rankin of Emden went 2 for 3 with a double, a single and 2 runs batted in. Junior pitcher Ashlyn Carroll (4-1) of Lincoln picked up the win for the Lady Lynx by throwing 3 complete innings. She only allowed five hits and no walks while recording three strikeouts.

In the second game, Lincoln College finished the sweep with a 9-3 win. Alex DeVaney (6-1) pitched a complete seven inning game to earn the victory. DeVaney was in command up until the top of the seventh inning when CSC loaded the bases, but the sophomore from Sherman struck out the side to end the game. She allowed eight hits, gave up one walk and struck out eight batters only allowing one earned run. LC had a combined total of twelve hits behind the offensive efforts of Erin Rankin 3 for 4 (double, two base hits), Mercedez Morgan 2 for 3 (two base hits), and Rylee Martin 2 for 4 (double and 2 base hits).

LC Coach Crystal Wurth: Plain and simple... We came out to play today! Thirty two total hits for the day is impressive! Our pitching and defense was good as well. When you put all the pieces of the puzzle together., this team can really be tough to beat. I'm proud of the improvements we have made since last weekend and look forward to keeping our momentum going into conference play this weekend.
