Lady Builder softball wasn’t able to pull out the win Friday against Kansas Wesleyan. Weather and field conditions caused the game to be played at the Mustangs indoor facility in Wichita.
Rachel Baker, sophomore pitcher, said “We had to overcome obstacles, it was tough playing on a turf field since we haven’t played or practiced on one, but we still played great defense.”
The Coyotes came out on top 6-1 in the first game and 6-2 in the second.
Improvements could be made on the Builder’s play today.
Devan Howard, junior outfield, said “We could have been better by losing the errors in the 6th inning. If we would have pulled together and got those outs Kansas Wesleyan would have never scored. Also, we need to hit the ball more and score more than one run a game.”
Kansas Wesleyan is now 10-4 in the conference while the Builders sit at 2-6.
The team does not get much rest as they take on Tabor College Saturday.
Sara Blackburn, junior outfielder, said “We need to stay strong all the way through the game. We also need to hit the ball and get runs on the board, if we do that we will be able to beat Tabor and hang with anyone in the conference.”
Tabor is 6-6 in the KCAC right now. The first pitch is scheduled for 1 p.m. at Hillsboro.
