Vickie Brummel was hoping her Blue Springs South softball team would get off to a successful start in the Greater Kansas City Suburban Softball Invitational, which is being played at Adair Park.

But in her wildest dreams, the veteran coach couldn’t imagine a scenario where her Jaguars scored 25 runs, allowed no hits or runs and claimed two mercy-rule victories Monday afternoon.

Michaela Tolliver and Megan Schwindler teamed up for a 10-0, six-inning no-hit victory in Game 1 and Schwindler returned to the mound in the Jaguars second game and claimed a 15-0, four-inning no-hit victory.

“I couldn’t even have dreamed we’d get off to a start like this,” Brummel said, as she helped the team gather its gear so another squad could occupy the dugout.

“The key to these two wins was pretty simple. The top of the order got on base and the rest of the girls drove them home. We were pretty successful today from the top to bottom of our lineup.”

Catcher Logan Spaw had a single and double and four RBIs in the first game and Tiffany Mudock added two doubles and two RBIs. Kelsey Dean also had two hits for the Jaguars.

Tolliver, a talented sophomore who burst on the scene last year when she outdueled Blue Springs sensation Kelsey Kessler, proved that the sophomore jinx wasn’t something she would have to worry about in the first game.

“I felt good out there,” said Tolliver, who threw the first four no-hit innings. “I didn’t even think about a sophomore jinx. I just went out and pitched my game.”

Jaguar hitters made sure that Schwindler felt comfortable in her first start as they cranked out 13 hits – including Spaw’s mammoth three-run homer to straight-away center field and Kaitlin Schaberg’s bases-clearing double.

Leadoff hitter Cheyenne Watkins had four hits and scored two runs, Schaberg added two hits and three RBIs and Tiffany Murdock had two singles and scored two runs.

“It’s great to see the girls hitting so well this early in the season,” Brummel said. “We played great defense, got great pitching and hitting and we get two wins. A very good day.”

Watkins and Schaberg each collected a base hit in the first inning against Odessa starter Taiylor Llewellyn, but they didn’t score.

The Jaguars made up for that lapse in the second by scoring five runs. Schaberg’s bases-loaded double was the big hit of the inning.

“This is a great way, an amazing way, to start the season,” Schaberg said. “You just feel so good when you play this well as a team. We got hitting, great pitching and we played good defense.

“We’re going to have a successful season if we keep playing like this.”

Three Odessa errors led to five unearned runs in the third inning as Spaw connected for her first out-of-the-park homer this summer.

“I didn’t get a homer all summer (with my summer-league team), so I felt like it was about time,” said Spaw, who had seven RBIs on the afternoon.

“I had two good swings my first two at-bats, and finally connected on my third at-bat.”

A Watkins RBI single plated the final run, and set off a noisy and excited exit from the field.

“It feels wonderful to get the game-ending hit, even if it’s in a 15-0, four-inning win,” Watkins said. “Everything about this win feels wonderful.”
