The LCC Lady Stars softball team is on a nine-game winning streak.

On Friday, April 14, LCC swept a doubleheader at Ancilla College, winning 9-0 in the first game and 12-1 in the second game. The Stars then came back home to sweep a doubleheader vs. Glen Oaks Community College on Saturday, April 15, winning 11-2 in the first game and 9-2 in the second game.

The wins bring the Lady Stars to 21-16 on the year and 15-3 in the MCCAA’s Western Conference. Next up is a doubleheader at home vs. conference foe Kalamazoo Valley CC this Friday, April 21. Action starts at 3 p.m. at Ranney Park on Lansing’s east side.

The Lady Stars had two players win awards for the week of April 10.

Sophomore pitcher/outfielder Morgen Ahlfeld won MCCAA Western Conference Pitcher of the Week. She went 3-0 with a minuscule 0.67 ERA. Ahlfeld struck out 32 batters in 21 innings in four pitching appearances.

Sophomore pitcher/outfielder Jillian Harris earned MCCAA Western Conference Player of the Week honors, batting .519 in eight games in the course of the week. She also tallied five RBIs and two steals.

Harris spoke about her accomplishment.

““(I’m) very thankful to be picked for this award,” Harris said. “I am glad my teammates and coaches push me every day at practice to be better. … I was surprised, but it feels great and super rewarding.”

Harris also spoke about the team’s early-season struggles, and how it has built the team to be as hot as they have been as of late.

“I think from playing some challenging teams down south and still getting to know each other, (we’ve) now figured out how being a team off the field contributed to how we play on the field,” Harris said. “(We are) having each other’s backs and picking each other up when we make mistakes, and now approaching every game with the attitude of wanting to play for each other and kick the other team’s butt.”

LCC Head Coach Marc Kibby also spoke about his award winners and their performances.

“These two sophomores have been working hard since they came last year to LCC, on and off the field,” Kibby said. “Their work ethic in the classroom (4.0’s) and their dedication on the field to hard work and team, (the awards are) well deserved for both of them.”
