  • A weekend road trip yielded two wins and two losses for the Pratt Community College softball team. After sweeping Ft. Scott 13-3 and 15-6, they dropped a twinbill to Johnson County 8-0 and 6-1.
    Sam Garrison was the hero in Friday’s opener at Ft. Scott. Hitting for the cycle, she racked up 6 RBI on a first inning triple, a 2nd inning grand slam, a 4th inning single and a 5th inning double.
    Fernanda Garcia (double) and Brenda Novelo (sac fly) also had 1st inning RBI to get Pratt off to a good start.  The Beavers extended their lead in the 4th by plating 4 more runs. Doubles by Novelo and Sam Kettering piled on runs for the Beavers in the 5th.
    Moundswoman Rauscell Baca recorded the win, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits over 5 innings. Strike-outs and walks were equal at 6.
    In the nightcap, Brenda Novelo wielded a big stick for PCC, going yard twice. She was 4-4 with 4 RBI and 2 runs scored.
    Other Beavers contributed offensively as well. Sam Kettering and Stephanie Seewer each took the Greyhound hurler deep for their first dingers of the season. Fernanda Garcia, Annette Thomas-Daw and Kelsie Lungren also drove in runs in the early going to stake Pratt to a lead.
    PCC pitcher Ely Ortega allowed 6 runs over 6 innings, walked 1 and struck out 6 to notch the victory, 15-6 Pratt.
    The Beavers’ pleasure over whomping Ft. Scott twice was tempered when 1B Sam Kettering was injured on a play at first base. Former Greenback Kettering is now out indefinitely with a broken wrist.
    Saturday’s contests at Johnson County were not nearly as much fun for the Lady Beavers as they were stifled offensively for most of the day, losing 8-0 and 6-1. Rachael Schoonmaker had 3 hits on the day including a double, and scored the Beavers only run on the day on a single by Thomas-Daw. Other than that, the Beaver bats were quiet and Johnson County posted wins 8-0 and 6-1.
    Now at  9-15, Pratt will play three times during spring break week, all at Angood Field. Monday, Dodge City comes to town, Friday KCK comes in for a 3 p.m. game and Saturday the Lady Beavers will host Highland starting at high noon.
