Behind solid pitching from Lauren Frailey Spendlove and Makayla Shadle, as well as timely hitting, the Utah Valley University softball team capped Colorado State Classic play with a 4-2 win over St. John’s on Sunday morning at CSU’s Ram Field.
With the win, UVU (7-10) posted a 3-2 outing on the weekend with a pair of wins over the defending Big East champion Red Storm (5-15).
“The difference in this weekend was how we came together as a team. We were able to be selfless teammates and everyone single girl played a role in our success,” freshman utility Peyton Angulo said. “Everyone took their role seriously. We found team love this weekend and competed every single pitch.”
After an hour delay due to cold weather, the Johnnies were the first to get on the scoreboard thanks to pushing across a run in the top of the first inning to jump out to a 1-0 advantage. The Wolverines then quickly countered back with a run of their own in the bottom of the frame to tie the score at 1-1. Angulo started the threat with a two-out double to left and Basia Query promptly followed with an RBI single up the middle to deadlock the score at 1-all.
UVU then managed to drive in a run in the second and another in the third to take a 3-1 lead. Following a second-inning triple from Brianna Moeller, Caragh Morris drove her home with an RBI single to right to give the Wolverines the early lead. Angulo and Query then reached base in the third, and Lyndsay Steverson drove in pinch-runner Linnah Rebolledo to give UVU a 3-1 advantage.
