MGCCC gets sweep at Coahoma

Mississippi Gulf Coast closed out its regular season Saturday by sweeping Coahoma 10-0 in five innings and 8-2 in Clarksdale, officially clinching a spot in the MACJC softball postseason.

 

"We played pretty good," Gulf Coast coach Kenneth Long said. "We started out kind of sluggish but started hitting the ball really well and doing some good things on the bases. That got us going a little bit."

 

The Lady Bulldogs are in a fourth-place tie and will play a best-of-three series Friday and Saturday on the road, with the opponent determined by the outcome of Tuesday's Hinds-Northwest.

 

If Hinds sweeps and joins the four-team logjam at fourth, Gulf Coast would be the seventh seed and travel to Jones County. If Hinds loses at least once, the Lady Bulldogs would be the six seed and travel to East Central.

 

Gulf Coast scored three runs in the third inning and seven in the fifth in Game 1. Madison Wall (Fr, East Central/Hurley), Lauren Hall (Fr, Nettleton/Nettleton) and Kristen Sexton (So, West Harrison/Gulfport) had two hits each.

 

Avery Sanders (Fr, E.D. White/Thibodaux, La.) struck out seven and allowed only one hit to improve to 8-4.

 

Katie Beth Williams (Fr, Smithville/Smithville) had three hits in the second game. Kaylynn Garrett (Fr, Oxford/Oxford, Ala.) and Jada White (Fr, Philadelphia/Philadelphia) had two hits each.

 

Mya Hopson (Fr, Madison Central/Madison) hit her sixth home run to help Betty Mingo (Fr, Choctaw Central/Philadelphia) improve to 8-3. Mingo struck out five and allowed five hits.
