Kelly Stokes struck out 11 Lady Vikes and allowed one hit each to Lyn Strawn and Anna Mitchell.

“I think the weather has a lot to do with our hitting,” WC coach Lucy Young said. “We just haven’t been able to hit live pitching in such a long time. We need more practice time.”

WC is scheduled to play four games on Saturday at Northwest Rankin starting at 9 a.m.
