CHICKASHA – The Drovers struggled on Tuesday night in the team’s regular-season closer, dropping twice on the road at Oklahoma City, a team that is tied for 17th in the NAIA’s most recent poll.

The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (36-22, 18-14) will look to bounce back in the Sooner Athletic Conference tournament, which is scheduled to begin on Thursday.

In the first game, OCU (45-11, 25-7) scored two runs in the second inning and then found a rhythm, scoring nine runs in the third to put the game out of reach for the Drovers, who dropped 11-0.

CHICKASHA– An impressive offensive showing from senior Ryan Wescott is what led to him being chosen as the Sooner Athletic Conference Player of the Week for the week of April 21-27.

In the week’s three games, which the Drovers went a perfect 3-0 against Southwestern Christian, Wescott had a batting average of .643 (9-for-14) with two home runs and 10 RBIs on the weekend.

Five of those runs batted in came in one game when he used two timely hits, including a three run homer in the first inning of the second game of the doubleheader.
