Warriors win another game in Florida
CLERMONT, Fla. - The Hendrix College softball team won its fifth consecutive game at The Spring Games at Legends Way Ballfields on Thursday with a 2-0 win over Benedictine University.
The Warriors (15-12) had a combined three-hit shutout from freshmen Dasha Donahoe and Savannah Draud. Donahoe (5-4) allowed three hits and struck out one in five innings to earn her fifth win of the year. Draud picked up her third save with a perfect final two innings.
Hendrix scored both runs in the bottom of the fourth. Bryanna Carlisle led off with an infield single and Shelby Anderson drew a walk. A ground ball from Nikki Sanders moved both runners into scoring position. Freshman catcher Karli Sewell followed with a double to center field, scoring Carlisle and Anderson.
Sewell had the Warriors’ only extra-base hit and extended her hitting streak to seven games. Anderson’s run was the 117th of her career, breaking yet another program record. She passed Kristen Juarez (2004-07) mark of 116.
