(Neb)-CSC Softball Opens Season With Split

By: John Axtell Posted at: 02/02/2018 03:56 PM
LUBBOCK, Texas - The Kaley Scearcy Era at Chadron State opened on a sweet note today as the Eagle softball team began its season at a tournament in Lubbock, Texas, by beating Texas Permian Basin 16-3 with 11 runs in the 6th inning.

      Unfortunately, they dropped their second game on a 3-hit 3-0 shutout by Lubbock Christian.

     The Eagles wasted no time getting on the scoreboard as Kayla MIchal's RBI single in the top of the 1st gave them a 1-0 lead. A RBI triple by Francine Boston and 2-run home run by freshman catcher Leilani Niccum made it 4-0 after 2 innings, and Niccum's solo homer in the 3rd put them up 5-0.

      Permian Basin closed the gap with 2 unearned runs on a single play in the 4th and an earned run in the 5th, but then CSC exploded for 11 runs in the top of the 6th on 9 hits...8 of them in a row...and a 2-run homer by Allie Mason.

     Megan Horn went the distance in the circle for the Eagles, giving up 1 earned run on 4 hits with 10 strikeouts and 2 walks.

    The Eagles never got untracked offensively against Lubbock Christian's Monique Francois, who struck out the side to open the game. They put 2 runners on base only once and never got a runner past 2nd base.

      Jessica Jeracki, last year's RMAC Co-Freshman of the Year, was the hard luck loser..giving up only 4 hits that resulted in an unearned run in the 1st, a homer in the 2nd, and a 2-out run in the 5th. Francois struck out 11 while walking just 2 and yielding 3 singles.

      Scearcy, promoted to head coach after 2 years as an assistant when Rob Stack decided to step down after a decade, and the Eagles have 2 games tomorrow - Midwestern State and a rematch with Texas-Permian Basis. They end their trip against Emporia State University on Sunday.
