PALM SPRINGS -- Facing some of its toughest competitors yet, BYU (9-3) lost both games of its first doubleheader against Oklahoma St., 3-1, and No. 1 Washington, 7-0 at the Cathedral Classic.

In their first game against Oklahoma St., the Cougars managed to out hit the Cowgirls 5-3, but couldn’t turn those hits into runs.

BYU’s one run came in the bottom of the third inning. Freshman J.C. Clayton reached first on a fielder’s choice.

While Kristin Delahoussaye was at bat, Clayton stole second and then advanced to third after an Oklahoma St. wild throw in an attempt to pick her off.

With Clayton on third, Tiffany Messerschmidt singled down the left-field line bringing Clayton home to score the Cougar's only run for the day.

Messerschmidt led the Cougars offensively with two hits on three at-bats.

Amanda Kellum, J.C. Clayton and Angie Quiocho also had one hit each in the game.

Paige Affleck continued to show improvement and accuracy from the mound. Affleck pitched all seven innings facing 30 batters, striking out four, walking two and only giving up three hits.

In the second game of their doubleheader, the Cougars played their toughest opponent yet as they faced No. 1 Washington.

The Huskies got off to a quick start scoring four runs in the first inning, and two in the second.

Jessica Fitu got the only Cougar hit against Washington pitcher Danielle Lawrie which came in the top of the fifth.

Lawrie’s performance was near perfect as she kept BYU to one hit and only walked one batter.

In the bottom of the second, BYU freshman right-handed pitcher, Hannah Howell, came in to test her skills against No. 1 Washington. Howell showed she was up to the task by retiring her first three batters in a row to end the inning.

In the end, Howell pitched four out of the six innings played and gave up two runs off of five hits. She faced 20 batters, struck out seven and walked two.

The Cougars return to the field tomorrow to play their second doubleheader against Cal Poly SLO and No. 2 Arizona at 12:30 p.m. (PST) and 3 p.m. (PST) respectively. Lives stats can be found at www.byucougars.com.
