It was a lesson in effectiveness.

With snowflakes swirling in the air, the Hesston College baseball team witnessed firsthand exactly how timely hitting is supposed to look. Unfortunately, the hitting came at the expense of the Lark pitchers as the No. 17-ranked Johnson County Community College pounded HC 12-1 on March 14.

The Cavaliers were relentless on the Lark arms to the tune of 17 singles and two triples for the 19 hits in the route. Hesston’s control issues were a bit better, but the Lark battery still walked five and combined for three wild pitches. Drake Sturgeon drove in the only Lark run in the sixth.

Hesston travels to MCC-Longview for a weekend series before returning home to host Redlands Community College on Tuesday, March 28 at 4 p.m.

Hesston’s loss drops it to 8-18 on the season.

Hopefully, Head Coach Andrew Sharp can bring back the California air or water when the Larks return to Kansas.

Whatever it was, worked wonders for the Larks as the Hesston College softball team finished up the spring break trip with an absolute thumping of College of the Desert on March 14, winning 15-0 and 11-1. The wins pushed the Larks to 15-9, the best start for the Larks under Sharp.

Ashley Yasin pitched the first game, only allowing two hits in the run-rule shortened contest. Yasin’s cause was helped by 16 Lark hits, including doubles by Taylor Martin and Cierra King and a home run from Sierrah Long.

Game two was turned over to Chantel Purcella, who scattered five hits and allowed one run. Long doubled and tripled while driving in three runs. Hesston pounded out 12 hits for the second game.

HC takes to the road in Region VI with a trip to Labette Community College on Friday, March 24, and Coffeyville Community College on Saturday, March 25. The Larks return home on Tuesday, March 28 for a non-region matchup with Southeast Community College.
