The Seward County Saints softball team took two over the Northwest Tech Mavericks on a blustery Wednesday morning at French Family Field. Seward won 11-1 and 12-2 in a pair of five inning run rule games. The games were moved forward to noon so the Mavericks could make it back to Goodland before a snow storm in northwest Kansas.

SCCC had two errors. Ireland Caro tossed a five inning no hitter. Beth Denney slugged a home run to right with the wind blowing across from left to right on a grey and windy day with temperatures in the 40’s and 50’s. Gabrielle Sanchez was 3-3 with four RBI’s. Sanchez hit two doubles with one triple. Macy Cesa-Spearman was 2-4 with two RBI’s and two runs.
In game two, SCCC scored two in the first and four in the second to take a 6-2 lead after two innings. Seward put up six runs in the third to blow the game wide open. The Saints out hit the Mavericks 13-6. Molly Adams gained the win and pitched four innings without allowing an earned run. Beth Denney hit another home run. Ashley Low was 3-3. Gabrielle Sanchez was 2-3 with three runs and three RBI’s. Beth Denney was 2-4 with three RBI’s and two runs. Madeline Pack was 2-2 with two RBI’s. Molly Adams was 2-3 with two RBI’s.
