CHICKASHA – More than halfway through the season, the Drover women have a strong winning record, despite facing several NAIA Top 25 teams along the way.
“So far it’s pretty good. We started off a little rocky. But we’ve come to understand how we actually work together as a team, and that has definitely proven successful for us,” Sophomore Brooke McLeod said. “I think we can only get better from here.”
CHICKASHA – The Drovers grabbed the sweep over Mid-America Christian Evangels on Tuesday afternoon, winning both games in comeback victories.
Sophomore pitcher Neesha Sorrell started off game one throwing three swinging strikeouts. She threw three more strikeouts before the Drovers gave up a run in the sixth inning off a strong double. Sorrell threw two more strikeouts to end the inning.
CHICKASHA – Giving up just one hit in two shutouts, senior Liz Agpalo was named this week’s Sooner Athletic Conference Co-Pitcher of the Week.
Agpalo pitched two complete games this week, earning a career first no-hitter against Benedictine College. She threw seven strikeouts in that game and was a hit batsman away from a perfect game. The Drovers went on to win that game 8-0 in five innings.
CHICKASHA – On Friday afternoon, the Drovers hosted the first day of their second annual Festival in February softball tournament at the Chickasha Sports Complex — and they claimed three more victories.
Facing McPherson College twice and Sterling College once, the Drovers went 3-0 on the day. Lubbock Christian, a SAC team the Drovers faced twice Thursday, is the other team participating in the tournament.
