SOFTBALL: Bordwine creates moment with OBU

Mar. 29—A former Chickasha softball standout took advantage of an opportunity.

Current Oklahoma Baptist University freshman Alli Bordwine had the chance to step up to the plate Friday in a Great American Conference softball game against East Central University. And the freshman created a moment in Shawnee.

Bordwine entered the game to pinch hit in the third inning, and she recorded her first collegiate hit. But it was not just a first hit for Bordwine.

Bordwine's first hit at the collegiate level was also the first home run in her collegiate career. With OBU leading 8-0 and with two runners on base, Bordwine gave the Bison an 11-0 lead with her home run.

OBU swept ECU in the series, moving to 25-10 on the season. The Bison also moved to 17-2 in conference play.
