Andi Williamson has won another one for the Marshall University women’s softball team.
Williamson, a Chapmanville Regional High School graduate and Harts native, gave up just one run and two hits in Marshall’s 10-1, five-inning victory on Thursday night over regional opponent Morehead State at Marshall’s Dot Hicks Field.
Williamson improved to 17-11 on the season.
The Herd swept Morehead State, also winning 7-4 to improve to 27-18 on the spring.
“In the circle, Andi gave us good stuff in game one, while in the second game we got what we needed from Natalee (Pulver) and Erika (Bennett) was great coming in and shutting the door,” Marshall coach Shonda Stanton said.
In the first game, Marshall plated five runs in the second inning as Alliana Telles rapped out a two-run double and Jessica Hughes had an RBI double in the frame. Ashley Gue and Rebecca Gamby also supported Williamson with two more RBI singles in the inning.
Gamby later ripped a leadoff homer in the fourth inning, her fifth of the season.
Melissa Loesing, Jazmine Valle, Gue, Gamby and Hughes all had two hits for Marshall in the opening game blowout. Telles finished with three RBI.
Morehead State dropped to 12-29 on the season with the pair of losses.
The Herd was scheduled to host non-conference foe Longwood on Saturday in a home doubleheader.
Marshall then has its last non-conference doubleheader on Wednesday against Wright State at 2 p.m. before heading to Greenville, N.C., to take on East Carolina in a three-game Conference USA series beginning on April 28.
The Herd hosts Central Florida May 5-6 in a three-game conference series to close out the regular season.
The Conference USA Tournament is set for May 10-12 at UAB.
Marshall is currently 11-7 in league play.
