In the second match up, LCC's offense produced 15 runs, recording 15 hits including 6 doubles hit by Alicia Fraire, Katelynne Russell, Annahy Pesina, and Alayna Georgio (2). Pitching efforts by freshmen Sheridan Wayne, Beverly Rehfeldt, and Sloane Vigoren combined for a win in the circle for the Lopes.
Sunday, February 2nd- On day two, LCC dropped to games to the Barton Community College with scores of 2-12 and 1-4. In the first game, the Runnin' Lopes were only able to record 3 hits, one each by freshman Viviana Guzman, Katelynne Russell and sophomore Alayna Georgio. In game two, freshman Katelynne Russell lead the Lopes offense going 2 for 3 at the plate with a double. However, LCC was unable to produce enough runs to top the Barton Cougars, losing by 3 runs.
The Runnin' Lopes are now 1-3 overall. LCC will play next against Dodge City Community College on Sunday, February 9th in Dodge City, Kansas.
