No. 6 ICC defeats Co-Lin in Wesson

WESSON – The Lady Wolves of Copiah-Lincoln Community College were unable to overcome the No. 6 Lady Indians on Friday, as Itawamba swept Co-Lin 10-1, 7-0. The losses give Co-Lin a 17-23 overall record and a 12-16 record in the MACJC. Friday’s contests were Co-Lin’s final league games, and the losses put the Lady Wolves one spot out of the playoffs.

“We put ourselves in a position where we had to beat the No. 6 and No. 9 teams in the nation and just couldn’t get it done,” said Lady Wolves’ head coach Allen Kent. “There were 8-10 close losses where we beat ourselves, especially early in division play…we play in the toughest JUCO league in the nation and you have to win the games you’re supposed to.”

Co-Lin is back in action Monday, April 24 at 3 p.m. as Baton Rouge travels to Wesson for the final game of the season. Co-Lin’s sophomores will be recognized between games.

Itawamba 10, Co-Lin 1

The Lady Wolves fell behind early and were never able to recover as the Lady Indians plated four runs in the top of the first inning. Itawamba scored on a single and a three-run homer.

Co-Lin scratched one run across in the bottom of the fourth when Dianna Hobgood smashed a solo homer to right center field. The towering shot cut ICC’s lead to 5-1.

The Lady Indians continued there ferocious offense in the top of the fifth with five more runs and pulled the game out of reach for Co-Lin.

Logan Deroche, Kamryn Vanlandingham, Kayla Britt, Alex Anthony, Hobgood, and Alexsundria Thomas each collected one hit to lead Co-Lin at the plate.

ICC collected 12 hits. Mamie Hollenhead led the Lady Indians going three-for-three. Rhodes and Maura Jane Autry added two hits each.
