The Georgia College Bobcats softball team was back in action on Tuesday evening, as they played host to the West Georgia Wolves for another doubleheader. The Bobcats, winners of four in a row, came into the matchup clicking on all cylinders.
The first game would, once again, be a masterful showcase by junior pitcher Marisa Boyette (5-0). Boyette pitched the Bobcats to the 8-0 win, (run rule executed after 5 innings of play), only allowing one hit and striking out eight batters in just the five innings. GC’s bats came alive early, scoring three of their eight runs in the bottom of the first inning. The freshman, Holland Coursey, continues to lead the team offensively. She finished the game going 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI’s increasing her batting average to a team leading .519.Kristen Humphries also had a great game, going 2-for-2 with a double and three RBI’s.
Game two was much of the same. A recently ignited Carly Lewis (3-2), who has also been pitching great for the Bobcats, cruised to her third straight win of the season. Lewis went the complete seven, allowing just four hits and one earned run while striking out five batters. Third baseman, Kristen Brooks, had a stellar performance, driving in four of GC’s seven runs. She ended the game 3-for-4, scoring two runs and blasting her first homerun of the season. Junior catcher, Lacey Najafi, also hit her first homerun of the season, a massive shot down the left field line and over the foul pole.The Bobcats finished the game with ten hits and picked up their sixth straight win on the season, improving to 8-2.
The next slate of games scheduled for the Bobcats will come this weekend in the Cougar Classic hosted in Columbus, Georgia.
