Sunday, February 10, 2008

TEXARKANA, Texas—The Centenary softball team ended its weekend of play at the Century Bank Classic in Texarkana on Sunday with a pair of losses to the University of Arkansas. The Ladies could not contain a Lady Razorback offense that put up 22 runs in the doubleheader, winning 13-1 and 9-1.


Centenary (0-6) put together five hits in the first game of the afternoon, led by Caitlin Cavarra’s two-hit performance. Jennifer Martin and Lindsey Virdell also had safeties in the loss, but the biggest hit came off the bat of Allison Shepperd. The sophomore third baseman belted her first homerun of the season to left field in the second inning for the Ladies only run.


Arkansas (5-1) plated two runs in the third, fourth, and fifth innings to move out to a 7-1 advantage before sealing the game with six runs in the sixth. The Lady Razorbacks used an 11-hit attack and used four homeruns to gain the victory.


Shepperd also accounted for the only Centenary run and hit in the second game. Lauren Flowers worked a walk in the first inning and moved to second on a wild pitch. Shepperd then singled up the middle to plate Flowers.


Cavarra extended her streak of reaching base safely to all six games this season with a walk in the fifth inning.


Arkansas scored its nine runs on only six hits and put up five runs on three hits and an error in the first inning.


The Ladies will return to action next Friday when they will take on Syracuse at 10 a.m. and Purdue at 12:30 p.m. in the Baylor Tournament.
