Lady Hawks climb conference standings with Webber victories


The Lady Night Hawks are now tied for third place in the Sun Conference standings after a pair of victories in Sunday’s road doubleheader against last-place Webber-International.

Despite nine hits in Game 1, Thomas mustered a pair of runs in its 2-0 shutout win. 

Aimee Johnson, the team RBI leader, brought in Brittney Mayhill in the first inning with a two-out double. Mayhill, the team’s No. 2 hitter with a .378 average, added an RBI with a one-out single in the seventh.

Ashley Sikes pitched all seven innings with six strikeouts while allowing no runs, walks and just four hits.

Webber responded with five runs in the second inning of Game 2 while holding Thomas scoreless until the Lady Night Hawks surged in the fourth.

Alex VanWagner and Johnson each brought home a run with back-to-back hits, then later scored on RBI singles from Ashley Sikes and Danielle Lower, respectively. The latter brought home three runs on her hit but was called out diving into third base on an attempted triple.

Webber padded a pair in the fourth, the Thomas capitalized with a score on a wild throw in the fifth. The Lady Night Hawks notched the game-winner in the final inning when Mayhill scored from second base on a Johnson base hit up the middle.

Thomas (18-17, 4-2), which capped a pair of doubleheaders this weekend, returns to the diamond with a Saturday doubleheader against St. Thomas and Sunday against Northwood. All four games will be played at Armory Field.
