Jayhawk softball runs streak to 20

March 12, 2012


— Twenty consecutive victories, four consecutive tournament titles … Kansas University’s softball team put together quite a nonconference season.

KU beat North Florida, 7-3, to win the Osprey Classic on Sunday and run its school-record winning streak to 20 heading into its Big 12 Conference opener this weekend at Missouri.

The Jayhawks (20-2) scored all the runs they’d need in the first two innings. After plating a single run in the first, KU won it with a three-run home run by Maggie Hull in the second. Hull was 10-for-17 with two home runs and nine RBIs over the weekend.

Ashley Newman was 2-for-4 to extend her hitting streak to 11 games.

Kristin Martinez (5-0) threw her third complete game of the season. She allowed just one earned run, with seven strikeouts and a walk.

Kansas will face MU at 6 p.m. Friday, 2 p.m. Saturday at noon Sunday in Columbia, Mo.
