Barton Softball Hangs Pair of Eight-Run Victories at Pratt


PRATT, Kan. ( – The Barton Community College softball team registered a pair of 13-5 five-inning victories Wednesday at Pratt Community College.



Barton scored in all but one of its four frames of the opener before busting open game two with a 2-out 7-run outburst in coasting to the doubleheader sweep.

The conference victories moves the Cougars alone into 3rd place of the standings at 21-9 and 26-16 on the season while Pratt drops to 5-25 in league and 9-39 overall.

Next up is the home and regular season finale on Saturday hosting Hutchinson Community College. First pitch against the Blue Dragons slated for 1:00 p.m. with sophomore recognition taking place between the two games of the doubleheader.

For the third straight twin bill, Barton matched its game one versus game two total hits, the latest in pounding out 12 in each of the contest.

Having surpassed the program record 199 doubles set last year in game one of its previous outing against Otero, the 2024 version of the Cougars added seven more on Wednesday increasing its total to 133 with at least four games left in the season.

Allyson McDougal led Barton’s production by going 4-of-5 with an RBI and a double while Aly Lawrence also collected four hits, three coming via the two-bag connection.

Reigning KJCCC Player of the Week Chloe Enslinger also had a solid day of 3-for-5 with a pair of 3-run home runs, both coming in the second inning as the first gave Barton a then 6-2 lead before belting her team leading 10th of the year capping Barton’s 7-run second inning of the night cap.

Elina Bartlett improved to 9-3 in the circle with the game one victory with Lawrence spinning game two improving to 7-3.
