The Jennies finished the regular season with a record of 39-13 overall and 21-5 in the MIAA to win their 8th all-time MIAA regular season championship. The Jennies are smoking hot at the right time as they have won their six straight games on three sweeps two coming this past weekend.

On April 23 the Jennies continued its outstanding play in the MIAA with a sweep of Lincoln. In their Pink Out games the Jennies were solid all-day.

In game one Katie Shockley picked up her 17th win, her 13th in a row. The bats were certainly alive for the Jennies as they smashed three home runs on 15 hit while winning eight to four.

In game two, Senior Jessica Wilkes was brilliant in her first time pitching in nearly two weeks, she threw a complete game, allowing just one earned run and striking out eight. The bats stayed hot as they tallied nine runs on 10 hits winning 9-1.

Saturday, April 25 the Jennies officially concluded its regular season with Senior Day with a double header against Lindenwood. The Jennies Softball program recognized Jakki Prater, Katie Shockley, Amanda Nally, Jessica Wilkes, also graduate assistant coach Killi Kurka in between games one and two.

In game one, Katie Shockley was great once again pitching the complete game giving up just one earned run and recording another win. The victory was the 14th consecutive for her and 18th on the season. With a leadoff infield single to begin the six from Senior Jakki Prater, Alex Loenhart did not leave her stranded crushing a homer to deep center. That gave the Jennies a 2-1 lead which held to be the game winning blast.

Game two provided a bit more offense for the Jennies as they recorded seven runs on 9 hits. Prater was great all around going a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate while still pitching five innings allowing just one earned run. Senior Jessica Wilkes pitched the final two innings allowing just one run on three hits. The Jennies went on to win the finale seven to two.

The win gave the Jennies the No. 1 seed in this week’s MIAA Championship Tournament. The team’s first game will be Thursday, April 30 vs. Fort Hays State. The Championship Tournament is held at the Blue Valley Recreation Complex in Overland Park, Kan.
