Lady Jets sweep Coffeyville

ENID, Okla. — Rebounding swiftly from their first losses of the season, the Northern Oklahoma College Enid Lady Jets swept a softball doubleheader Friday at David Allen Memorial Ballpark against Coffeyville (Kan.) Community College, 5-2 and 9-1.

The Lady Jets (12-2) wasted little time in putting their double dip loss on Tuesday to Seward (Kan.) Community College behind them as they pounced on Coffeyville for four runs in the first inning of the opening game, and built a 5-0 lead after two innings before the Lady Ravens (4-8) added single runs in the fourth and fifth innings.

Taylor Todd delivered the big blow for the Lady Jets in the opener with a three-run homer in the first inning that put NOC Enid up 4-0 after the Lady Jets had taken a 1-0 lead on a wild pitch that scored Shyanna Sigman, who had walked to start the inning.

NOC Enid made it 5-0 in the second inning when Lauryne Dester scored on a fielder’s choice from Kendra Coleman. Dester had reached base with a lead-off single.

Shelika Shives started the game for NOC Enid and went four innings to get the win. Coleman came on and pitched three shutout innings and struck out six to finish off the victory.

In the nightcap, the Lady Jets pounded out 12 hits and, like in the opener, jumped out to a 5-0 lead after two innings, putting up four runs in the second inning, highlighted by a pair of doubles from Todd and Shives.

Shyanna Sigman led off the fourth inning for the Lady Jets with a homer to put NOC Enid up 6-2.

The Lady Jets put the game out of reach with a three-run fifth inning after Coffeyville had narrowed the gap to 6-3 in the fourth inning.  The Lady Jets loaded the bases with nobody out in the fifth on base hits from Jazmine White and Sigman and a walk to Sydney Harrel. Todd singled in a run, and Marisa Tinney followed two batters later with a two-RBI single.

Sebock, Shives, Sigman and Todd had two hits apiece for NOC Enid. Tinney and Shives each had two RBI.

Shives started the game, but Coleman went the final five innings for the win for NOC Enid, which takes on Neosho County (Kan.) Community College today on the road in a doubleheader.

    Rice said Monday he will not appeal his suspension, which could wind up costing him $529,411 in fines and salary. And why wouldn’t he? He must feel like he got off scot-free.
