St. George, UT – The Santa Fe Saints season came to an end on Thursday afternoon at the hands of Weatherford CC (TX) 9-1. SF was never able to get anything going offensively and the Coyotes bats were on fire from the get go, leading to their mercy rule victory.
The Coyotes wasted little time taking control of the contest as they jumped out to a commanding 8-1 lead after three innings, scoring a single run in the first and two more in the second, before erupting for five tallies in the third. WC infielder Sydney Kramer delivered a two-run single as part of the decisive rally in the frame. Weatherford then plated the game-ending run on a bases-loaded error in the fifth.
The run support was more than enough for Coyote starter Kylie Studioso, who scattered one run and three hits in three innings of work with four strikeouts. Kramer finished with three hits and three RBI to lead the Coyotes offensively.
Santa Fe clean-up hitter Rachel Hoeft accounted for the Saints’ lone RBI, which came in the third inning.
SF ends the season with a 42-18 record, the Mid-Florida Conference Championship, and the Atlantic District Championship.
