The EPCC softball team spit their four home games last weekend to improve to 3-11 on the young season.
“We played good. We played together as a team,” said head coach Katie Gutierrez. “But we could’ve come together a little bit stronger.”
The series began on Friday with a game each against the Cisco College Wranglers and the Colby Community College Trojans. The teams met again on Saturday’s series finale.
The first game on Friday saw the Tejanas lose a high-scoring affair to the Wranglers 12-6.
In the opening day’s second game, the Tejanas outscored Colby Community College 6-1.
The Tejanas put up the first score of the game in the second inning.
The trend of scoreless innings continued until the fifth, which saw EPCC post two unanswered runs and a 3-0 lead, which they never relinquished.
Tori Borunda led the team with 2 runs.
The Tejanas once again took on the Wranglers in Saturday’s first game, ending with a final score of 17-5 again in Cisco College’s favor.
The loss dropped EPCC’s record to 2-10 as they prepared to take on the Colby Community College Trojans in the final game of the day.
The Tejanas were able to come away with their second win over the Trojans, posting a 9-0 shutout.
“We figured it out the second game and we had a better turnout,” said shortstop Sarina Ramirez.
Second baseman Tori Borunda added, “I think we were really prepared.”
When asked what the team can take from these games to carry into the next ones, Mickayla Arganda, first baseman said, “Intensity and always giving our best effort.”
The Tejanas will travel to Athens, Texas to face the Trinity Valley Community College Cardinals on February 28 and 29.
