The CACC Trojans softball team swept the Huntingdon Hawks in a doubleheader this past Tuesday, winning by scores of 15-3 and 8-0.
The first victory was powered by the long ball, as the Lady Trojans went yard five times.
1B Andrea Barnett, 2B Robin Dunaway and catcher Shannon Summers each smacked two-run shots over the fence. OF Carley Toretta hit a three-run blast out of the yard.
Pitcher Lindsey Broome, who got the victory in game one, helped her own cause with a 3-run homer and a double.
CACC softball coach Greg Shivers was impressed with his team’s early play.
“It’s good for us to play well,” Shivers said. “We showed some rust here and there so we definitely have to get better.”
Broome didn’t record a strikeout during game one but Shivers said her control and the defense behind her were top-notch.
“She did an excellent job of working the corners,” Shivers said.
Game two was dominated by hurler Alyssa Kornegay. In five innings of work Kornegay fanned nine batters.
While the Trojans didn’t net any round-trippers in the nightcap, Summers and infielder Jessica Matthews fueled the Trojans offense.
“We stress playing well in all three phases; defense, pitching and hitting,” Shivers said. “We have different ways of scoring. Obviously we swung the bats really well.”
Next for CACC is a trip to Panama City where they’ll face Gulf Coast Community College, Northwest Florida  State and defending national champs Chattanooga State.
“It’ll be good to play competition that’ll push us,” Shivers said.
