Rambelle softball defeated Texas Woman’s University in Friday’s game to gain Coach Travis Scott his 700th career win.

The final score of the game was 4-2. Kenedy Urbany pitched most of the game.

Courtney Barnhill hit the first homerun of the game in the first inning to bring in Madison Greenwell.

This tied the game after TWU scored two runs.

“It allowed us to breathe,” Scott said.

Barnhill said that after the other team scored two runs, they responded very well.

“I like how we respond; we always fight back,” Barnhill said. “I like being on a team that fights back.”

Barnhill said they went out there and battled, but that they do have areas to work on.

“Maybe a little more hits and be more consistent in the batting box,” Barnhill said.

Scott said they came out and swung the bats well.

Scott said overall it was a good win against a good Lone Star Conference team.

Urbany scored the team’s second home run in the fourth inning.

“We only had two hits, Scott said. They were two big home runs, but if you only have two hits, those are the two you want.”

However, Scott said the team has to work on a couple things before they play again.

“We need to hit the ball with more average and put more runs up there.”

Scott received his 700th career win after this game.

“It meant a lot to be able to go on the field and get that 700th win for him,” Barnhill said. “It was nice.”

Scott said the win was very special to him considering it was his 700th.

“I’m proud of what we have accomplished,” Scott said. “It keeps us with a three game cushion over the teams that are right behind us.”

The Rambelles ended up winning the next two games against Texas Woman’s the Saturday after the 700th win. The first game’s score was 4-0 and the second one was 7-1.

The Belles were unanimously voted number one by the National Fastpitch Coaching Association on March 29.
