Softball – JCCC bounces back with sweep of Coffeyville

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – After opening the conference season with a pair of losses at Labette last week, the Johnson County Community College softball team rebounded with a double-header sweep at Coffeyville, Tuesday afternoon. JCCC won the opener 6-1, and followed with a 7-1 victory. JCCC is 5-3 on the season. 

In the first game, Johnson County started out slow, only scoring one run through the first five innings, and that came courtesy of a passed ball. The Lady Cavaliers bats came alive in the sixth inning, scoring five runs. 

The second game JCCC was more consistent in their production, scoring two runs in the second, one in the fourth, two in the fifth and two in the seventh, for a 7-1 win. 

“We came out in the second game with a new attitude and little more pride, and we played as a team,” said head coach Aubree Brattin. “We had all nine hitters in the line up step up and do what was needed to either get on base or move a runner on base. We played selfless softball, which is what we have to do to win games.” 

Freshman Katie Yoakum had a solid effort at the plate in game two. She ripped two doubles, drew a walk, drove in a run, scored three times and stole two bases. Sophomore Jessica Joy also went 2-for-4 with a double, a sacrifice bunt and two RBI. 

On defense, freshman Jessica Peacock was solid with her glove, registering 14 assists. 

“Despite the results of our games at Labette, I am excited about the group I have this season,” Brattin said. “If we can keep the mentality we had in game two at Coffeyvillle, then we will be unstoppable.”
