CHICKASHA – Playing their final Top 25 team of the regular season, the Drovers struggled to overcome the powerful Saint Gregory’s Cavaliers in USAO’s third annual Pink Out Cancer game Sunday afternoon.
First baseman Sara Reeves came out with a strong first game, scoring both USAO’s runs after going 2-for-3 from the plate. She scored first in the bottom of the fourth inning off an RBI single by left fielder Katie Jirak.
Reeves scored again two innings later off a hit by right fielder Markie LaFerney.
The two runs weren’t enough to top the Cavaliers, who won the game 8-2. They put up eight runs in the second game as well to top USAO 8-0.
It was Drover softball’s third annual Pink Out Cancer game hosted by Drovers Against Cancer. The Drovers, as well as fans, donned pink for the doubleheader, and DAC sold concessions to raise money for cancer research.
The Drovers (20-23, 3-17) play at East Central on Tuesday afternoon and at Southwestern Christian on Saturday afternoon. Their next home game will be the team’s final home game, Senior Day, for a doubleheader against Mid-America Christian beginning at 2 p.m. on April 25.
