WAKE FOREST — Wake Forest’s softball team got off to a hot start on their way to beating Heritage 11-7 in the NAC 6 conference tournament championship Thursday, May 5.

Even though Heritage scored three runs in the top of the first inning, Wake Forest responded with six in the bottom of the inning. The Cougars added at least one run in every inning after that, while the Huskies scored two in the third, one in the fifth and one in the seventh.

Wake Forest consistently stayed ahead with one run in the bottom of the second, two in the third, one in the fourth and one in the fifth. The Cougars tallied 13 total hits in the victory.

Taylor Jones was the player of the game for Wake Forest. The sophomore recorded a hit for every single at-bat with four hits with three RBIs, three runs and two home runs. Megan Kruger also hit a home run and finished the game with two hits, three RBIs and one run.

Brookelyn Jenks pitched six innings on the mound for the Cougars and struck out seven batters.

Wake Forest finished the season third in the NAC 6 conference standings ahead of Heritage and behind Rolesville. Wakefield won the conference regular season championship, but lost to Heritage 4-2 in the conference tournament semifinals.
