The first place Spanish Springs softball team has been on quite the roll as of late. Not only did they shut out all three opponents they played last week, but the Cougs have blanked five straight teams since its game one loss to Bishop Manogue on April 3. Since the, the Cougs have outscored its opponents by a total of 53-0.
That trend continued last Thursday in a 15-0 road win at Wooster that saw pitcher Tyra Clary throw an abbreviated no hitter over three innings while striking out six. Cougs senior Rylee Retzer led the game in hits with three while Carissa Andrews, Katelyn Townsend and Clary led the game in RBIS with three each.
The Cougs played a five inning game on Saturday against McQueen but the result was the same as they blasted the Lancers 11-0 in game one. Clary was brilliant in the circle again with seven strikeouts and one hit over five innings while also connecting with three hits and picking up a pair of RBIs at the plate. Aubrey Parks had a double and home run on three hits and four RBIs and Courtney Huff tallied three singles.
Clary started game two for Spanish Springs and went the distance while striking out three and scattering six hits in seven innings to lead her team to a 7-0 win. Parks smacked a home run, double and single while Retzer added a home run of her own. Kilee Pender picked up a pair of singles in the win.
The Cougs (19-2, 11-1) sit firmly in first place with eight games remaining on the schedule. They host Douglas tomorrow before playing two at North Valleys Saturday.
