KU softball caps off perfect weekend with win over Wichita State


Kansas softball completed a perfect 5-0 weekend in the Rock Chalk Challenge with a 10-7 victory over Wichita State on Sunday at Arrocha Ballpark at Rock Chalk Park.

KU (13-11) jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning after redshirt sophomore Shelby Gayre hit a two-run shot to deep center field, which was her 10th blast of the season. The Shockers responded with two home runs over the next two innings to take a 4-3 lead.

Kansas then put together a six-run third inning. Freshman Ashlyn Anderson came through with a three-run homer, while junior Tarin Travieso sent a solo shot to deep center. Sophomore Lexy Mills received her third win of the season after coming in to pitch 2 2/3 innings and recording five strikeouts.

Kansas will travel to Fayetteville, Ark., to compete in a doubleheader against the Razorbacks on Tuesday.
