Jasper would plate two in the second, third and seventh innings and one in the fifth for a total of seven runs on 11 hits. Senior Hannah Schwenk led the Wildcats hitting attack in their trip to Owensboro with four singles in four trips to the plate, while fellow senior Mia Werner went 3-for-4. Meanwhile, another senior, Kylie Patterson, was 2-for-3.
