  • The Pratt Community College softball team only got one of their scheduled doubleheaders in this week.
    On Monday, they split with Barton County, but Tuesday’s games against Garden City were postponed.
    In Monday’s twin bill against Barton, Pratt put up 4 runs in the 1st inning to take control of the game. The big blow of the inning was a three-bagger off the bat of Taylor Oldham.
    Oldham also tripled later in the 5th inning and racked up 4 RBIs in the contest.
    Ely Ortega was in the circle for PCC and yielded only 1 earned run on 7 hits while fanning three and issuing no walks.
    Barton tried to get something going in their 4th inning, but the Beavers were able to get out of it only giving up one run.
    Pratt put the game out of reach in the 5th inning by tacking on 3 more tallies. Stephanie Seewer hit a round-tripper and Oldham’s 2nd triple plated Sam Garrison for the frame’s key hits.
    Barton rallied for a pair in the 7th inning but it was too little, too late and the Beavers took game one 7-3.
    In the nightcap, PCC outhit the Cougars 8-5, but were outscored 4-1. Barton managed only lone tallies in four innings, but with the Beavers not capitalizing on their opportunities, the Cougars were able to claim game two 4-1 and salvage the split.
    On Tuesday, Division 1 Garden City was to have made a visit to Angood Field, but that was kiboshed along with all the other outdoor sporting events in Pratt due to the freak winter storm.
    The Lady Beavers have a 17-21 (11-11 conference) record at present. They will do the traditional Coffeyville/Labette road swing this coming weekend with games at 2 p.m. Friday at Coffeyville and at 1 p.m. Saturday at Parsons.
