— Kansas University’s softball team split of pair of games Saturday, defeating Saint Francis, 10-2, and falling to Kentucky, 4-2.

In the loss to Kentucky, junior Chanin Naudin’s third home run in three games started a seventh-inning rally for Kansas, but No. 8 Kentucky held on. Kelsey Kessler allowed seven hits as the Jayhawks fell to 23-10.

Kessler (13-7) struck out five in her 15th complete game of the season.

In KU’s victory over Saint Francis, a pair of home runs started and finished KU’s scoring.

Naudin’s home run put the Jayhawks on the board in the third inning. KU piled on nine more runs in the third and fourth innings.

Sophomore Chaley Brickey’s seventh home run of the season in the fourth inning gave Kansas a 10-run lead.

Wow. I have never been so embarrassed as a KU alumn as I was at the KU vs UK softball game yesterday. The head coach and the big guy (assist coach?) were a total embarrassment! They bitched and yelled (not so nice things) at the umps when things didn't go their way. Even the fans in the stands were commenting that the umps were not going to put up with it and thought the coaches were going to get thrown out. Unfortunately, they didn't get thrown out (too much paperwork and explaining to do when you do that). I had dinner with the umps last night and they were talking about how disrespectful they were to the game and the fans and that they were the worst coaches they have seen all year. They thought that maybe they were trying to intimidate them (the umps). Kansas does not have a bad reputation but these coaches are going to change that. What a disgrace and an embarrassment. I hope someone from admin sees this post and does something about it. They made Kansas look bad. Rock Chalk.

Wow. I have never been so embarrassed as a KU alumni as I was at the KU vs UK softball game yesterday. The head coach and assistant coach were a total embarrassment to our University. They showed unsportsmanlike conduct when yelling and bitching at the umps when calls didn't go their way. Even the fans in the stands from UK were saying how the umps were not going to put up with that and thought the coaches would get thrown out. I was ashamed to be a KU fan at that time. What a disgrace and an embarrassment. They made Kansas look bad. Rock Chalk.
