Southeast turns rare triple play in tournament victory

Southeast coach Scott Harrison had never seen a triple play in softball before Saturday.


The Spartans accomplished the rare feat against Millwood during the championship game of the Southeast Tournament, crippling their opponent in the 6-5 victory.

Millwood had runners on second and third with no outs in the top of the fourth when the batter lined to pitcher Natasha King, who threw to third baseman Treaasure Gordon for the second out. Gordon then threw to shortstop Erica Edwards, who tagged the runner trying to get back to second for the final out.

Southeast was clinging to the 6-5 lead at the time.

“It was unbelievable, especially considering the situation,” Harrison said. “There's a good chance they could have taken the lead.

“It was a backbreaker for them, but it led us on to a championship.”

EDMOND NORTH CRUISES THROUGH TOURNAMENT

Edmond North coach Ricky Nordyke was pleased with how his team performed in the OU Tournament over the weekend.

The defending Class 6A champion won all six games in the tournament, including a 4-2 win against Jenks in the title game.

“I think as a team we hit the ball probably the best we have all year,” Nordyke said. “I thought we played better and got our confidence together just like we did last year. About this time of the year, the girls really started pulling together and helping each other out out there.”
