The LSU Eunice softball team wrapped up a perfect weekend with a pair of wins at the Lamar State Tournament on Saturday, picking up an 18-0 win over Cisco Community College before a 9-2 victory over Lamar State in their final game.
"It was a great weekend, we swung the bats well and our pitchers did great," head coach Andy Lee said.
"We weren't leaving people on, we were getting big hits, and everyone was contributing," he added.
In the opener, the Lady Bengals (16-2) batted around twice in the first inning, batting around the order twice while scoring 12 runs.
They added three more runs in the second before capping their scoring in the fourth with three final runs.
Kelsey Hollier finished 3-for-4 with a two-run homer and a two-run double both coming in the first inning before adding an RBI double in the second inning, to pace the Lady Bengals.
Randi Vosburg connected on a homer of her own in the fourth inning, a three-run shot, to finish her afternoon with two hits and four RBI. Codi Covington finished with two hits and two RBI, while Taylor Simon collected two hits and an RBI for LSU Eunice.
Brooke Thomas, Ali Jung, Brooke Ort, Brooke Rozas, Emily Clark and Pam Wainwright each finished with one hit, with Thomas and Wainwright drving home an RBI each and Ort bringing home two RBI.
In the circle, Brooklyn Guillot and Elizabeth Delafield combined for a no-hitter, allowing just three base runners to reach via error while walking zero and striking out four batters.
In the nightcap, the Lady Bengals again did all their damage in the opening innings, scoring two runs in the first before batting around and scoring seven runs in the second inning. They added a final insurance run in the sixth.
Simon led the way offensively, going 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored, while Caitlen Blanchard, Ashley Subervielle, Clark and Covington each had two hits.
Clark brought home three RBI with her bases-clearing double in the second inning, while Covington and Emily Nolan each tallied an RBI as well.
LSU Eunice hits the road again on Tuesday, when they travel to take on Copiah-Lincoln College in a doubleheader set for a 2 p.m. first pitch.
"They are 9-0 right now and one of the toughest teams in our region. We are looking forward to getting there and playing some good competition," Lee said.
