Kansas softball routs Ga. Tech


Kansas University made short work of its nonconference weekend opponents.

The Jayhawks routed Georgia Tech, 12-1, on Sunday at Arrocha Ballpark for their third-straight run-rule-shortened victory of the weekend.

Kansas went 4-0 over the weekend and outscored its opponents 35-3.

“What a great weekend,” Kansas coach Megan Smith said. “We showed up to play in all aspects of the game, and it was good to see the team bounce back from some things that we didn’t do well last weekend. We absolutely did those things well this weekend. Our offense was clicking, and we were taking advantage of the pitchers’ mistakes. Defensively, we were on cue, so it was really nice to see us come back this weekend and play so strong.”

Andie Formby (14-5) won after allowing a run off four hits over four innings.

Chaley Brickey went 2-for-2 with a double, home run, two runs and three RBIs, and Daniella Chavez was 2-for-3 with two RBIs.

Kansas (24-13) will host Texas Tech, Friday through Sunday at Arrocha Ballpark.
