Rambelle softball swept a doubleheader against Lubbock Christian University on March 2 to put them at a 19-1 overall record.

The LCU Lady Chaps were shut out 10-0 by the Rambelles with junior pitcher Brandy Marlett pitching the first portion of the game.

"I think we played extremely well today," Head Coach Travis Scott said.

Senior pitcher Kenedy Urbany pitched the last half of the second game. The Rambelles won 7-1.

"We had a lot of confidence and momentum going into the second game," Urbany said.

Urbany said her mindset for pitching the last of the game was to "hit my spots and let my defense do the work."

"There are always things to work on," Urbany said. "We can work on the little things, but I think we did a really good job of hitting and playing defense and we just have to keep doing that throughout the season."

The Rambelles had a total of three home runs throughout the two games; one from sophomore catcher Taegan Kirk and the other two from freshman outfielder Courtney Barnhill.

"Taegan and Courtney both had great days and these are two good wins," Scott said.

Scott said Urbany and her defense were "phenomenal" during the second game.

"Kenedy kept the ball on the ground and if we do that we’re going to play pretty good defense," Scott said.

Scott said Marlett and Kenedy pitched well and Karina Rocha had a good day at third base.

"[The team] stayed focused and to get a run early there in the first inning was huge," Scott said.

Scott said to be able to go out and beat the two LCU pitchers was "quite the accomplishment" because they were both good.

"They are a 16-2 team and we came in here and played extremely well," Scott said.

After these two games the Lady Chaps are now 16-4 on the season.

Scott said the team proved a lot in these two games.

"Our schedule so far hasn’t been overly tough and this is a great team that we just went out and played really well, so I think it proves that we can beat anyone in the country," Scott said.

Urbany also said these were two huge wins.

"I think these were two really good team wins especially against Lubbock Christian because they are a very good program," Urbany said.
