Two Baker softball players earn HAAC honors
After an impressive 3-1 record at the Oklahoma Baptist University Spring Festival over the weekend, a pair of freshman from Baker University earned this week’s Heart of America Athletic Conference Softball Player and Pitcher of the Week awards.
Freshman pitcher Katt Cooper earned this week’s HAAC Pitcher of the Week honor, while freshman Lucy Staats was named the HAAC Player of the Week.
Staats batted .625 on the weekend with three home runs, including two against No. 15 ranked OBU. She also had a double, a walk, and five RBIs on the week and helped Baker improve to 5-4 on the season.
Cooper was stellar again for Baker with her complete game win against OBU with six strikeouts and one walk while allowed just four hits.
She also picked up another six-inning shutout win over Dordt, allowing just three hits, two walks and eight strikeouts.
The Wildcats will next take on the Friends Invitational on Mar 7-8 in Wichita.
