The Wildcat softball team battled through a tough tournament in Norman last weekend, coming up winless in four games.
In the opening contest against a competitive Missouri State squad, the Wildcats struck first after senior Holly Neese grounded out bringing in junior Donelle Johnson.
But a three-run homerun in the fourth by Darian Frost scored the only runs of the game for the Bears, and secured the 3-1 win.
Facing off with No. 4 Oklahoma left the Wildcats licking their wounds, falling 8-0 and allowing three Sooners’. OU pitcher Michelle Lopez picked her third win while ACU’s sophomore Shelby Craig fell to 0-3.
The Wildcats would face each team one more time in the Courtyard Marriott Tournament, but didn’t fair much better falling 8-0 and 8-1 to Missouri State and Oklahoma respectively.
Despite a coming up winless, senior Peyton Hedrick, felt optimistic about the weekend.
The Wildcats responded with big wins in a two-game series with Bowling Green in Abilene. ACU claimed a 3-2 and an 8-4 win at home Tuesday. Two of the three runs scored by the Wildcats were unearned in the opening game.
In the second game, Craig picked up her first win of the season as eight runs were piled on before Bowling Green had a chance to score in the finale.
