The PJC Lady Pirates came out with a massive softball swing shutting out John Wood College March 10 in a double header.  

“Everyone got to play and got some experience out there on the field,” Head Coach Brenda Pena said.

The first game ended at 7-0. There wasn’t a chance for John Wood players to come back and take on the Pirates.

In the second game, the Lady Pirates were up two to nothing in the bottom of the first inning; as Kaci Pribanic and Hannah Wilson made their way home for the earned runs.

But it wasn’t until the second inning when Lady Pirates brought in the action.

Bases were loaded when Gerisi Garcia stepped onto the plate to send one runner home, making the score 3-0. At that point, John Wood College kept making errors and the Lady Pirates line-up collected eight more runs.

The mercy rule interrupted the second game cutting it short after the top of the fifth inning, due to the Lady Pirates drastic lead 11-0.

“We are very excited for Conference to start, and look forward to seeing [PJC] out here supporting your Lady Pirates,” Pena said.

 The first conference game is March 17 and it will be the beginning of a very competitive league, according to Pena.
