Lady Eagles record first-ever softball victory

Playing in only its second game in the program’s history, the Conway Christian softball team turned up the offense Thursday and romped to its first-ever win, as the Lady Eagles defeated Abundant Life 33-4.

Conway Christian did the bulk of that damage in the second inning, when the Lady Eagles sent 34 batters to the plate and scored 28 runs, after both teams were scoreless in the first frame. The game was called after three inning due to the sportsmanship rule.

Kara Lee Duker struck out five in two innings of work. Tayton Cope, in her first time to pitch in a competitive game, struck out two in the final inning played. Both also drove in three runs, with Duker also scoring five runs.

Morgan May paced the Conway Christian offense with four hits, including a double, and four RBI. Jessica Wilson had two hits and two RBI, while Sarah Roberson finished with a double and three RBI. Lexi Dather also drove in three runs.

The Lady Eagles return to action Monday against St. Joseph.
