Lady Senators split twinbill at Columbia State

COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Walters State split a pair of games at Columbia State Saturday night after the opening two games of the series on Friday were canceled due to rain.


The Lady Senators opened the doubleheader with an 8-3 loss to the homesteading Lady Chargers before roaring back for a 13-8 victory in the nightcap to salvage a split of the Tennessee Community College Athletic Association series.


With the split, Walters State is now 26-17 on the year and 18-9 in TCCAA play. The Lady Chargers are now 18-23 for the campaign and 13-15 in league play.


In the opener, WSCC scored a run in the second, third and fourth innings, but it wasn't enough against the home team. Taylor McConnell ripped a pair of hits with a double for the Lady Senators, while Keeley Quillen added a double and Sydney Dukes, Kallyn Newport and Olivia Wheeler each had a single in the loss.


Walters State left the bases loaded in the sixth inning and a runner on third in three different innings during the game. Delilah Malczewski took the loss on the mound.


In the nightcap, Quillen roped five hits, including two home runs and a double, with one of her long balls being a grand slam. She drove in seven runs in the victory.


Sydney Fox added two hits with a double and two RBIs, while Dukes had two hits with an RBI and Emily Whitaker added two hits with a double and two RBIs. Lauren Brickey added two hits with an RBI, while McConnell doubled and Emma Seagrave had an RBI single in the victory.


Brickey picked up the win after working three innings as the starter. WSCC scored a run in the first frame and four runs in the second, fifth and seventh innings in the win.


The Lady Senators will be back in action Wednesday for the first of three home doubleheaders this week to close out the regular season, as they host Spartanburg Methodist beginning at 2 p.m.
