Sand Shark Softball Improves to 16-0

USCB’s softball team remained undefeated with four more wins this weekend, taking two games apiece from visiting Rio Grande (Ohio) and Reinhardt (Ga.) to improve to 16-0. 

The Sand Sharks beat Rio Grande 6-1 and Reinhardt 6-2 on Saturday, then defeated Rio Grande 8-1 and won 3-2 on Canyon Crosby’s game-winning RBI double in the seventh inning against Reinhardt on Sunday. 

The first game of the weekend was scoreless until the fifth, when the Sand Sharks scored two runs, then followed up with four in the sixth for a 6-1 win over Rio Grande. Kaitlyn O’Hearn was 3-for-4 with two RBIs, Kayla Boyle drove in two runs, and Sloan Ducey allowed one run and six hits over 6 2/3 innings for the win. 

USCB used a five-run third inning to take control in a 6-2 win over the Eagles in the second game, as Boyle went 2-for-3 with a homer and four RBIs, O’Hearn was 3-for-4, and Crosby allowed one run and three hits over four innings of relief for the win.

The Sand Sharks opened Sunday with an 8-1 win over the Red Storm, using a six-run fourth inning to break it open. Crosby was 2-for-3 with three RBIs and Haley Hawkins drove in two runs in support of Abby Pac, who struck out five and allowed one run and four hits to improve to 5-0. 

USCB was in danger of suffering its first loss of the season in the final game of the weekend, trailing 2-1 entering the bottom of the seventh before Shania Domingue singled home Taylor Boykin with the tying run and scored on Crosby’s double to center. 

USCB (16-0) travels to Brewton-Parker for a doubleheader Wednesday.
