  • It was a busy stretch on the diamonds for the Pratt Community College baseball and softball teams over the weekend, as they each played several games before taking a few days off for Spring Break this week.
    The Lady Beavers softball team played three doubleheaders in four days, winning two games out of the six. The baseball team took one game of a four-game weekend series with HCC.
    Last Friday, PCC softball split with Ft. Scott, dropping a close one 10-8 before run-ruling the Greyhounds 15-3 in five innings in the nightcap.
    On Saturday, the Beavers were swept by Jayhawk East-leading Johnson County 5-3 and 10-0 in a five-inning run-rule contest. (The Lady Beavers, a Division II softball program, play in the Jayhawk East.)
    On Monday, the Beavers split a twin-bill with Garden City— with both games being decided by a single tally. In the opener, the Beavers pushed across runs in the 6th inning to take a 5-3 lead. Summer Snyder drove in Stephanie Seewer with the game-winner after she had reached on an error and then advanced on an RBI single by Anna Plante which plated the Beavers’ 4th run.
    Garden City threatened in the 7th, but could only manage 1 run in the 7th, so PCC won 5-4. Fern Garcia picked up the win for Pratt, going the distance.
    In the nightcap, the ’Busters struck for 3 runs in the 6th inning to jump ahead. The Beavers were unable to retake the lead and fell 6-5 in a close one. PCC’s Sarah Morrison went 3-4 and scored 3 runs in a losing effort. Emily Wooldridge took the loss for Pratt, giving up 5 runs in 4 1/3 innings.
    The Lady Beavers now stand 3-15 on the year, 1-7 in the Jayhawk East. PCC will return to conference play this weekend with a road trip to KCK and Highland.
    The baseball team hosted Hutch Juco in a four-game set, taking one out of four from the Blue Dragons. On Friday, Hutch opened the series with a 10-6 win. The teams split Saturday’s double header, with Hutch taking game one 12-6, but Pratt shutting out the Blue Dragons 4-0 in the nightcap.
    In the series finale on Sunday, Hutch prevailed 15-11 in a slugfest. After the series with Hutch, the Beavers’ record stands at 9-16 overall, 2-10 in the conference. Next up for the Beavers, PCC will host Tabor JV on Friday starting at 2 p.m. at Stanion Field.
