Jacksonville , Fla. — 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.
