No. 20 Oregon Softball Continues Dominance In Tournament
Feb. 24, 2001
The No. 20 University of Oregon softball team continued its success at the Troy Cox Classic in Las Cruces, New Mexico with two wins Saturday to improve to 4-0 at the three-day tournament. The Ducks (14-7) defeated Iowa State 6-2 and followed with a 6-0 shutout of Houston.
'This is the type of softball we are capable of playing,' Oregon head coach Rick Gamez said. 'It's nice to see that we have been able to put together our offense and defense on back to back games.'
Freshman pitcher Anissa Meashintubby started her second game of the season against Houston and improved to 2-0 on the season after allowing zero hits and zero runs in five innings pitched. Meashintubby has allowed just one run in 14 innings pitched this season.
Sophomore Andrea Vidlund improved to 5-2 on the season against the Cyclones in the Ducks' first game. Vidlund allowed just three hits and two runs in seven innings pitched. Vidlund also pitched the final two innings of the Iowa State game to help Oregon secure its first no-hitter of the season.
Offensively, the Ducks continued to be strong, led by sophomores Lisa Wangler and Alyssa Laux. Wangler finished the day 5-for-7 with four runs scored and one run batted in. Laux was 5-of-6 on the day with one run scored and two runs batted in.
Third baseman Lynsey Haij also came out swinging for Oregon, going 2-for-4 in both games, including a double against Houston.
