Lake-Sumter State College swept a softball doubleheader from Santa Fe College on Monday to earn the school’s first berth in the Mid-Florida Conference Tournament.
Jasmine McQuaig picked up her 10th win of the season in the opener and Nini Underwood had a walk-off RBI single in a 4-3 victory. In the second game Allie Geier threw a complete game, allowing only one unearned run as the Lakehawks posted a 6-1 win.
“These girls deserve all the credit with what they’ve done on the field,” said LSSC head coach Jay Miller. “This group did a lot of things that this program hasn’t seen in a long time and I am so proud of them.”
Lake-Sumter softball has set a school record for wins with 32 and posted the highest conference finish in school history by tying for third.
LSSC baseball falls to Daytona
Lake-Sumter State College’s Tanner Clark had a three-run double during a four-run fifth inning but Daytona State College rallied in the sixth to down the Lakehawks 5-4 on Monday at Lakehawk Field.
Colby Woodard kept LSSC within striking distance by shutting out Daytona State over 3.2 innings of work, but the Lakehawks were held to four hits for the game and just one single after Daytona State took the 5-4 lead in the top of the sixth.
Lake-Sumter falls to 15-29-1 overall and 7-13 in Mid-Florida Conference play while Daytona State improves to 22-18 overall and 7-13 in the conference.
