COLUMBIA- MacKenzie Bowden's one-hitter proved to be enough, as the William
Woods University softball team captures the 2013 American Midwest Conference Tournament
championships, defeating the Park University Pirates 6-0.

The Owls hurler only gave up a seeing-eye single to Kyla Tatum in the fifth inning, as she
struck out 13 Pirates over seven innings, helping William Woods (24-14) win its second AMC
Tournament title in the last three years.

Lindsey LeCuru and Macy Wierschem provided a big offense punch for William Woods, as
the duo each hit a home run in the game, LeCuru hitting a two-run shot in the third inning,
Wierschem hit a solo shot in the fourth to chase Park University (30-9) starter Kelli Wenberg out
of the game.

William Woods plated the first run of the game in the second inning, as Lindsey LeCuru led off
the inning with a walk, and promptly stole second base during the next at-bat. Ashley DePew was able to drive her in from second with a one-out RBI single to right field.

Shelby LeCuru led off the third inning with a single. Two batters later her sister Lindsey was able
to drive her in with a two-run home run to right center field, giving William Woods a 3-0 lead.

Bowden was cruising through the first three innings, as she collected six strike outs her first time through the Park order.

Wierschem provided Bowden a little more room to work by drilling a long home run to straight
away left field for the Owls fourth run of the game.

Park University got its first hit off Bowden in the bottom of the fifth inning as Tatum found the
gap in between first and second for a one-out single. The hit didn't phase the Owls righty, as she
promptly struck out the next two batters, giving her nine strike outs through five innings of work.

The Owls plated two more runs in the top half of the seventh inning with RBI's from Kacey
Scharnhorst and Kristy Pluchinski.

Bowden closed out the game by striking out the side in order in the bottom of the seventh, giving William Woods the 6-0 victory.

Now William Woods will play the waiting game to see where they will be playing in the NAIA
National Tournament Opening Round, as the field will be announced on Tuesday.

After the game, the AMC recognized members of its first team and honorable mention all-
conference teams. The Owls had five representatives on the two squads, as MacKenzie Bowden
and Shelby LeCuru garnished first team honors, while Ilissa Facchini, Lindsey LeCuru, and
Becca Schemmer were members of the honorable mention team.
