The Pratt Community College Lady Beaver softball team swept Allen County Community College this past Friday and also picked up one win against Neosho Community College before the rain hit and caused the second game to be rescheduled.

In game one at Allen, the Beavers won 4-3. Pratt (16-9, 7-2 Jayhawk East) combined for seven hits in the game with two runs driven in by Ami Osner, sophomore third baseman from Kingman.  Bre Beckerman, sophomore from Inman, was in the circle for Pratt.  Beckerman allowed five hits, one walk, and struck out two in seven innings of work.

In game two of their doubleheader, the Lady Beavers were lead by Kali McCulloch, freshman outfielder from Wichita, and Hannah Page, freshman outfielder from Pratt, both going 2 for 3 offensively in the 3-2 victory.  Liz Wahl, freshman pitcher from Westminster, Colo., threw six innings for Pratt, allowing four hits, two strikeouts, and no walks. Wahl was relieved by Samantha Rice, freshman pitcher from Topeka, who allowed three hits and no runs to close out Allen in the bottom of the seventh.

At Neosho on Saturday, Pratt run-ruled their opponent in six innings 8-0 before game two was postponed due to rain. Molly Baker, freshman catcher from Rose Hill, led the Beavers with a 4 for 4 day and a leadoff homerun in the first inning. Ashton Neumann, freshman shortstop from Pratt, and Ashley Stockemer, freshman second baseman from Wichita, both went 2 for 4 on the day to help the offense. Beckerman was in the circle once again for Pratt, allowing just three hits, no walks, four strikeouts and no earned runs.
