**For Immediate Release**
Cameron Gets Two Softball Wins from OPSU
by Aggie Sports on 03/02/06

Goodwell, Okla.- Oklahoma Panhandle State softball pitching and defense was excellent over two games on Wednesday, but the Lady Aggie bats were not there. Cameron University was in town for two games and won them both, 4-0 and 2-0.

Cameron 4, OPSU 0

Cameron played great defense, and though they only got four hits off OPSU’s Rachael Hughes (JR; Topeka, KS), it was enough to get the win. The Lady Aggies came close to getting a run across the plate two times, the first in their initial at bat. Lead-off hitter Jacqueline Cornish walloped a double down the left field line and advanced to third on an error. However, the senior from Denver, Colo., was tossed out at third base after heading just a bit too far down the line toward home plate.

In the late innings, catcher Jennifer Costeldia (SR; Grand Junction, CO) whacked a double to right field that hit the fence on the fly, but she ended up stranded on base. Cornish had two hits in three at-bats, and Antonia Ramirez (JR; Tombstone, AZ) also had a hit for OPSU

Hughes gave up only four hits in a complete game performance, and the Lady Aggie defense was solid, especially shortstop Pam Moore (SO; Ontario, Canada).

Cameron 2, OPSU 0

In Wednesday’s second game, pitcher Adrainne Sandall (SR; Magna, UT) pitched extremely well and gave up only two hits. However, the OPSU bats did not give her enough support as the Lady Aggies only picked up three hits of their own. Ramirez got two of the OPSU hits, and Costeldia got the other.

As in the first game, the Lady Aggie pitching and outfield work was very good.

Post game, OPSU coach Nikki Cothran was pleased with her pitchers and the improvement the Lady Aggies have made in their fielding and throwing, but said the team had to continue to work on stringing some hits together.

The next home action for the Lady Aggies is set for March 18, when they host Western New Mexico.
