**For Immediate Release** OPSU Softball Falls to Newman By Laura Nelson on 04/13/2013 Goodwell, Okla.—After winning both games in the doubleheader on Friday, the Aggies could not complete the sweep on Saturday as Newman University won the final game of the series 10-1.

The Lady Jets held the Aggies scoreless through six innings of play as they racked up their 10 runs. In the seventh inning, lead-off Britnie Weddle smacked a double and advanced to third on a wild pitch and then Bristol Ashlock singled to send her home. Newman's Taylor Parsons worked all seven innings in the circle, allowing eight hits and striking out three. OPSU's starting pitcher Brittany Scruggs was credited with the loss, scattering eight hits and giving up four runs in three and one-third innings. Weddle had two hits for three at-bats and had eight putouts at first base.

The women continue Heartland Conference play at home April 19 with a doubleheader against St. Mary's that begins at 1 p.m. with the third game scheduled for April 20 at noon.
