Athletics - posted on 4/14/2009
The Lakeland College softball team crossed home plate 35 times Tuesday afternoon, taking a pair of Northern Athletics Conference games 15-0 and 20-1 against Alverno in Milwaukee.
The Muskies (17-5, 10-0), undefeated in conference play and winners of their last 15 games, had 10 players record at least one RBI and 11 players score at least one run.
Freshman catcher Christina Moore (New London) had a career day at the plate with hits in five of her six at-bats, driving in 12 runs with three home runs and six runs scored. She had a three-run homer in game one for the first home run in her career, and knocked in a grand slam in game two.
KC Blahnik (Gladstone, Mich.) and Kayla VandeWettering (Appleton) each hit balls out of the park for Lakeland in game two after missing the first game because of classes. Blahnik homered in the second inning to drive in two, and VandeWettering hit her first two of the season, a grand slam in the fourth and a solo shot to lead off the fifth to account for all five of her RBIs.
Blahnik, Moore and Chelsea Coenen (Wrightstown) each had at least four hits on the day, and Moore, Coenen and Sam Shepeck (Gladstone, Mich.) all scored six runs for the Muskies.
Sara Roberts (Escanaba, Mich.) picked up her 12th win of the season, throwing five innings with two hits allowed and a walk. Roberts struck out six Inferno batters.
Cassie Felton (Green Bay) recorded the win for Lakeland in game two, giving up a single run on three hits and one walk in five innings. Felton improves to 4-1 on the season with the victory.
The Muskies return home for a pair of doubleheaders Friday and Saturday against Concordia Chicago and MSOE. First pitch on Friday is scheduled for 4 p.m.
