STILLWATER, Okla. —
Cailyn Fluty, softball
She may be just a freshman, but she certainly didn’t look the part during Stillwater’s come-from-behind-win against Enid Tuesday.
After leading off the game with a double in the bottom of the first to help Stillwater tally three early runs, Fluty drove in Larkin Anderson with a single in the bottom of the seventh as the Lady Pioneers topped the Pacers 10-9 in the home opener.
“That’s just another case of a freshman that was put in a tough situation and got a pitch to hit,” Stillwater coach Amber Davis said. “I just told her to relax. It wasn’t her first at-bat. She got a pitch to hit and drove it right back up the middle.”
Maggie Ireton, volleyball
Ireton has been a jack-of-all-trades for the Lady Pioneers this season, but she looked pretty comfortable going up against the Class 6A No. Edmond Santa Fe front line Thursday.
The senior tallied five kills an ace and three blocks against the top-ranked Wolves. And while Stillwater was swept 3-0, the match did feel like a moral victory for Ireton and the Lady Pioneers.
Courtney Hughes, softball
In softball, often times it’s expected that the No. 3 hitter will be a catalyst for the offense. But while Hughes did produce an RBI against Enid, she was a different kind of catalyst.
The senior went 2 for 4 with an RBI, but she also acted in more of a leadoff role, ripping a triple during Stillwater’s five-run third inning.
