LWC Softball prepares for 1st-ever meeting with Thomas More
By Kyrin Mayfield
The No. 3 Lindsey Wilson softball team will take on Thomas More (Ky.) for the first time in history with a doubleheader on Friday and Saturday. The series begins Friday at 1pmCT at Thomas More Field.
The Blue Raiders (8-0, 4-0 Mid-South Conference) are fresh off a sweep of Shawnee State. Lindsey Wilson shut out the Bears twice and held them to four runs or less in every game while scoring six or more in each contest.
Annabelle Ramirez was a key factor in Shawnee State's struggles at the plate. She recorded three wins in the series and sits at an ERA of 0.31 on the year over 22.2 innings pitched with 39 strikeouts and five victories, fourth-most in the NAIA.
Lyric Houston and Makea-Al Kaluau provide the power in the Blue Raider lineup. Houston leads the team in batting average (.545), runs (12), and slugging percentage (1.227). She also has 13 RBIs, the second-most on the squad, and two stolen bases. Kaluau comes in with a .519 average, seven runs, and a team-high 19 RBIs. Both players are tied at the top of the team in doubles (4) and home runs (3).
Thomas More (2-4, 1-3 MSC) will resume play after dropping three out of four games to Bethel (Tenn.) back on Feb. 26 and 27. The Saints have found success at the plate to begin the season having scored nine or more runs in four of the last five games.
Andrea Gahan paces Thomas More in the batter's box with an average of .412, six runs, seven RBIs, three home runs, and two stolen bases, all of which lead the team.
Hannah Bishop has been the go-to pitcher for the Saints by starting in the circle for four of the team's six contests. She holds a 1-3 record with a 8.24 ERA over 17 innings pitched and two strikeouts.
Live stats will be available for both doubleheaders with the first game beginning at 1pmCT on Friday. No visiting fans are allowed to attend. Please view the Thomas More Fan Attendance Policy for more information.
