by Francesca Carrera
Simpson softball’s season is just getting underway and already the team has added impressive victories to the win column, topping the number one ranked team in the country, Southern Oregon University.
On February 2, the Red Hawks played their fourth and final game of the weekend, the second against the Raiders.
Sophomore pitcher Sunshine Wehunt was in the circle for SU, recording 8 strikeouts in the 2-0 shutout win.
Prior to the victory over Southern Oregon, Simpson beat Holy Names University in a walk-off 1-0 win.
The following Tuesday, the Red Hawks beat the Beacons from Northwest Christian in a doubleheader, winning both games, 8-0, and extending their win streak to four.
This past weekend didn’t go as planned for SU as they fell to Oregon Tech and Dominican University of California. However, the close scores showed their resilience and fight.
Simpson will play at home again on Saturday, February 16th and Sunday the 17th as they take on Eastern Oregon and William Jessup.
