Oklahoma high school softball: How Southmoore has constructed 14 straight wins to start the season
The Southmoore softball team has continued its hot start as they expand their win streak to 14.
The Sabercats' latest victories came over Putnam City North (3-9), Norman (8-7) and Edmond Santa Fe (10-4) last week.
Southmoore coach Jason Lingo said most of the credit for the SaberCats hot start is due to pitchers Abi Jones and Brinly Maples. The two only allowed six runs in the last three games.
“They are both juniors who throw totally different but they complement each other well and they have been on fire for us lately,” Lingo said. “They’ve done an absolutely incredible job throwing the ball.”
The pair have won all 14 of Southmoore’s games, Jones earned seven wins and Maples earned six. This season, the pair both have an ERA under 1.5.
“At a moment's notice, if we feel like [the other team is] starting to get the timing down with our pitchers, we throw the other one in, they high five each other, switch spots and don’t miss a beat,” Lingo said. “So we’ve been really excited with how those girls have thrown and helped our team succeed.”
