STERLING, KAN. – The Sterling College Lady Warriors hosted the Ottawa University Braves on Wednesday for a KCAC doubleheader. The two teams battled it out, but the Lady Warriors dropped both games to the Braves, falling 3-2 and 3-0.

Game 1:

Sterling started with early hits in the first inning, collecting singles from Jessica Munoz and Dominique Salgado, but the Braves kept the Lady Warriors from scoring after the first to keep it tied, 0-0. Sterling would get on the board first, behind a RBI single to left by Jenna Weimer to score Nicole Flatley, putting the Lady Warriors ahead 1-0 at the end of the second inning. Byanka Diosdado continued to keep the Ottawa batters off track at the plate, as both teams struggled at times to collect hits, with the advantage in favor of the Lady Warriors.

Ottawa finally broke through late in the fifth inning, scoring three runs to jump ahead 3-1. The Lady Warriors added a run of their own behind a sac fly to left by Miranda Escalera to score Jenna Weimer, making it 3-2 heading into the final two innings, however, the Ottawa held off the late surge by Sterling, as the Braves would defeat the Lady Warriors in the first game, 3-2.

Jenna Weimer led Sterling with two hits, while four other Lady Warriors added a hit of their own. Miranda Escalera and Weimer each had an RBI in the game, while Byanka Diosdado finished with five strikeouts in the game.

Game 2:

In the second game, both teams continued to keep each other from making any early moves, as the two combined for five hits in the first five innings keeping the score at 0-0. The Braves finally broke the 0-0 tie, scoring three runs in the top of the sixth to take a 3-0 lead.

The Lady Warriors looked to make a final run late in the game, using a base hit from Tiah Grass and a sac fly by Tobi Salzman, but the Braves held off the Sterling rally, as the Braves defeated the Lady Warriors in the second game, 3-0.  

Chica Bati, Dominique Salgado, and Tiah Grass each collected a hit for the Lady Warriors in the game.
