Polsley throws two shutouts

DENVER – Chadron State College pitcher Kylee Polsley threw two complete game shutouts to help the Eagles sweep Regis during their Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference doubleheader Monday afternoon in Denver.

Polsley, a senior from Omaha, allowed only two hits in the Eagles' 4-0 victory in the first game and she followed with a four hitter in CSC's 5-0 triumph.

With the victories, Chadron State improves to 8-12 overall and 5-3 in the RMAC, while Regis falls to 7-14 and 6-5. The Eagles were originally scheduled to play two games at the University of Nebraska-Kearney Tuesday but the doubleheader has been postponed because of scheduling conflicts.

Polsley, who has five of CSC's eight wins this season, went 3-0 against the Rangers on Sunday and Monday, and allowed just three runs in 21 innings of work.

"She threw phenomenal all weekend but she had a great day today," head coach Dr. Robert Stack said. "She did what we asked her to do and she threw with a lot of guts in that second game."

In the opening game, Polsley struck out four Regis batters and allowed only two singles. She got all the runs she would need when CSC's Rebecca Wetsch hit an RBI single in the top of the third inning but Wetsch drove in another run in the Eagles' 3-run fifth to put the game away.

Also in the fifth inning, Jessica Eatmon hit a single that plated Rebekah Anthony and Shea Graham to put the Eagles' up 4-0.

In the second game, Sarah Knudsen hit a solo home run in the first inning and Courtney Lecher blasted an RBI double to centerfield in the second to give CSC a 2-0 lead after two frames.

Chadron State put the game away in the top of the sixth when Casey Polk hit a 3-run home run.

Polsley tossed another gem in the second game by scattering four hits and striking out four.

For the day, Chadron State scored nine runs off nine hits. Lecher, who had two doubles, led the way with three hits but Knudsen and Eatmon both had two.

Chadron State will host Adams State in a four-game RMAC series Saturday and Sunday. First pitch is set for noon on Saturday.
