Surry softball sweeps St. Joseph
Dobson, NC – March 18, 2015.
Surry Community College’s softball team continued its torrid hitting, banging out 24 hits over two games Wednesday as the Knights swept St. Joseph’s College (Vermont) 10-2 both games in Dobson.
The Knights needed just five innings to win the opener 10-2 as the team ripped 14 hits. Rachel Wagoner and Hayley Tickle both went 3-for-3 with an RBI. Taylor Little was 2-for-4 with 2 RBIs, while Kelsie Griffin and Lacey Grubbs both homered for Surry (9-5, 2-0 Region X). Grubbs hit a two-run shot and finished with 3 RBIs, while Griffin went 2-for-2 with a solo home run.
Pitcher Shey Steelman had another good outing for the Knights, allowing just three hits and two runs while striking out five.
“We came out and hit the ball well and the pitchers did a great job again,” said Surry head coach Blaine Bullington. “I thought we played well defensively and made the plays.”
The Knights ripped 10 hits in Game 2, another 10-2 victory, extending the team’s streak to four games with a double-digit hit total. Tickle improved to 6-1 on the season as she gave up three hits and struck out five in six innings of work.
“Hayley threw a great game again. I really felt like today she struggled a little on her control, but she still did a great job,” Bullington said.
Griffin led a hot-hitting Surry team at the plate, going 2-for-4 with 3 RBIs and a double. Molli Huffman and Taylor Little both went 2-for-2 for the Knights, while Kaylee Johnson was 2-for-3.
“I thought we played great. We played really good defense,” Bullington said. “And at the plate, we had 10 hits and continued the offensive onslaught. I hope we can continue to hit the ball like that.”
