#7 Coe wins pitcher duel against #16 Wis.-Whitewater in Pella softball regional
PELLA (IOWA)—The Coe Kohawks walked to victory against the Wis.-Whitewater Warhawks 1-0 at the Pella Regional.
Each school sent out their star pitcher, Jessica Stang (19-5) for Wis.-Whitewater and Ashlee Simon (25-2) for Coe. The bats were silent the entire game for both teams, with Wis.-Whitewater mustering a 2-1 hit advantage. But in fourth inning, Stang walked four straight Kohawks, allowing the only run of the game. The RBI was awarded to right fielder Brandi Haight and proved to be enough for Simon, who struck out 12 batters and allowed only four baserunners.
Coe improves to 37-9 and plays Central (36-7) Friday at 4 p.m.
Wis.-Whitewater drops to 26-11 and meets the Benedictine Friday at noon.
