Bluejays sweep Central in opening games

The Tabor College women’s softball team started its season on Monday in convincing fashion, running away with a clean sweep of Central Christian College of McPherson, 15-1 and 5-2.

The Bluejays struck first and often in their first game against Central Christian, amassing 14 runs in the third inning alone.

Tabor’s Shelby Griffith was 3-for-4 at the plate with five RBIs and two runs in the Bluejay win.

Bluejay pitcher Jennie Ewertt only allowed one hit in Tabor’s opening game.

Central Christian’s Angie Lovitt had Central’s only hit, a double in the Bluejay win.

The second game of the doubleheader turned out to be a little more work for the Bluejays, who eventually claimed a three-run win.

Although Tabor tacked runs on the board in each inning, Central Christian grabbed a couple runs late in the contest.

Misty Collins and Ewertt led the Bluejay offensive assault in the second game.

Collins was 2-for-3 with two doubles and one run for the Bluejays.

Ewertt batted 2-for-3 with one RBI, two singles and a run scored.

Priscilla Mace was the ace on the mound for the Bluejays. She allowed four hits and has an earned-run average of 2.00.

Central Christian’s Angela McDonald had one double against the Bluejays.

With the wins, Tabor is 2-0 on the young season.

The Bluejays host Benedictine College today at 3 p.m., then travel to Salina Friday and Saturday to play in the Kansas Wesleyan Tournament.

The times for the Kansas Wesleyan games have yet to be determined.
