Cowgirls Take Two from Aggies

—By Laura Nelson on 04/13/2012 Las Vegas, N.M.—The New Mexico Highlands Cowgirls, a good softball team in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, took two games from the Aggies earlier this week, winning decisive 8-0 and 17-9 victories.

The Aggies had six hits in game one with Julie Cross going a perfect three-for-three at the plate and Kari Fry with three hits on two at-bats. Pitcher Kendra Wellnitz took the loss, scattering seven hits and getting two strikeouts in three innings on the mound.

Aggie bats worked well in the second game as they women scored nine runs off 11 hits, but the Cowgirl hitting was even better as four Aggie pitchers gave up 20 hits. Dezyrae Arredondo was two for three at the plate and earned three RBIs and Juuna'e Dai'Re had two RBIs. Pitcher Kayla Pollard took the loss.

Conference rival Texas A&M International is in town Friday and Saturday for a three-game series and the Aggies have the opportunity to earn a place in the Heartland Conference tournament this weekend. The first pitch of Friday's doubleheader is set for 1 p.m. and the third game will be played Saturday beginning at 11 a.m.

Come out and cheer the Aggies on to post-season play!
