Cougars Finish Pool Play

ARLINGTON -- The BYU softball team travelled to Texas expecting to play in warm weather at this weekend's Arlington/ISUZU InterCollegiate Classic but instead played in Provo-like, 19 degree-weather. The Cougars braved the conditions and won one game while losing two during pool play, Friday. BYU beat Louisiana Tech, 11-3, but lost to the University of Texas-San Antonio, 4-3, and No. 2 Oklahoma, 6-3.

BYU started early in the day with a game against Texas-San Antonio, losing 4-3. Maryon Dewitt-Wallentine pitched the entire game for the Cougars, but the team lost yet another close game. Freshman Oli Keohohou provided the offense, hitting a 2-run homerun, her third of the season. Keohohou has homered in three of the four games in which she has played this season.

"We're coming together, but can't quite get over the edge in the close games," coach Mary Kay Amicone said. "But I am happy with our improvement."

The mercy rule ended the second game of pool play, as BYU jumped all over Louisiana Tech, using an offensive explosion and solid pitching by Ariel Capra and Liz Boydston to get the win. LTU had a 3-1 lead early, but the Cougars went up 5-3 and then exploded for six more runs, winning 11-3. Senior shortstop Becca Erickson, not expected to play because of an ankle injury she suffered earlier in the week, had a homerun in the win.

In the third game of the day, BYU faced defending NCAA Champion and No. 2 Oklahoma. The Cougars kept the game close but lost 6-3. Junior Liz Boydston and Erickson led the charge, each having an RBI, accounting for two of the three BYU runs.

BYU's record moves to 2-6 on the year. The Cougars will play either Stephen F. Austin or Northwestern State tomorrow in the first round of bracket play at 9 a.m.
