STUART — Whatever the state record is for runs in an inning, it is a fair bet 18 is in the ballpark.
Woodward-Granger (19-6, 12-1) opened the second game of a WCC doubleheader at West Central Valley (2-19, 0-13) Thursday with 18 runs in the bottom of the first inning to record an 18-0 win in three frames.
The Hawks were 19-0 winners in the opener, scoring run totals of 3,2,5,1 and 8 for a five-inning win.
Riley Jamison won both games, allowing three hits and a walk in the opener and five hits in the nightcap. She had two strikeouts in each game.
Senior Dalaney Bice was her normally dangerous self, hitting a double and a home run in the opener and a double and a grand slam (her second of the season) in game two while driving in three and six runs, respectively. Bice now has 15 dingers this season and 50 for her career — which included missing her entire junior season to a knee injury.
Miranda Aunspach, Kaycee Major and Jamison were all 3-for-4 in game one, with Maggi Mallon 2-for-4. Aunspach had two doubles and Jamison and Major one each. Both Kaycee and Carli Major joined Bice in driving in three runs apiece while Jamison, Aunspach and Kendra Husmann had two RBIs apiece. Anna Tague led the team with four runs scored.
Hitting stars were aplenty in game two as well, with Bice leading the way. Mallon played the second-largest role with a three-run double.
The Hawks will play twice Friday and twice Saturday in the Clear Creek-Amana Classic in Iowa City. W-G faces Williamsburg at 1 p.m. Friday and Class 2A No. 1 Iowa City Regina at 5 p.m. before playing Class 4A No. 2 Carlisle at 10:45 a.m. and Central Clinton at 4 p.m. Saturday.
