With another pair of lopsided victories Tuesday over Fisher College (Mass.), the USC Beaufort softball team has begun its inaugural season by outscoring its opponents 122-1.
The Sand Sharks pounded Fisher 18-0 and 14-0 in Tuesday's doubleheader at Richard Gray Sports Complex in Hardeeville, out-hitting the Falcons 35-3.
Freshman Hailey Grimoskas shut down Fisher (0-4) in the opener, striking out seven and walking one in a two-hitter. Freshman Cara Jamerson followed that up in the second game with nine strikeouts in a one-hitter.
The Sand Sharks (6-0) received home runs from Katie Rietkovich and Taylor Triplett in the first game. Rietkovich was 2 for 3 with four RBIs, and Triplett was 2 for 3 with three RBIs. Shelby Zipperer had a single, double and triple in the 18-run romp.
Never miss a local story.
Kalin Martin led the way in the second game, going 4 for 4 with a double, a triple and four RBIs. Victoria Hilton added three RBIs.
The Sand Sharks will put their undefeated record on the line Thursday, making their first road trip of the season to Jacksonville, Fla., for a 2 p.m. doubleheader at Edward Waters College.
