May 5, 2017
SAN ANTONIO (May 4, 2017) – It wasn't how Oklahoma Christian would have preferred it happened, but the Lady Eagles made it to the second day of the Heartland Conference Championship softball tournament on Thursday.
Lubbock Christian (Texas) shut down OC's offense as the Lady Eagles fell 4-0 in their opener, but they rallied from an early deficit and survived several hairy moments to escape with a 2-1, nine-inning win over Newman (Kan.) at The Park at St. Mary's in the tournament's first elimination game. Sheridan Bond tripled and scored in the ninth to keep OC's hopes alive.
