In Friday's first game of the Fort Hays State University softball team's season-opening doubleheader wth University of Nebraska-Kearney, senior Maddie Holub picked up right where she left off.

Holub pitched a 2-0 complete game, tying her own program single-game record with 16 strikeouts in the shutout. Holub, a Thomas More Prep-Marian graduate, also scored both runs for the Tigers in the win, scoring after stealing a base in the fourth and then scoring after a single in the sixth.

In the nightcap, freshman Paxton Duran picked up the first win of her Tiger career, by pitching a complete game in a 4-1 Tiger win at Tiger Stadium.

In the opener, Holub reached in the fourth with a single, stole second and was driven home by freshman Courtney Dobson. Then, in the sixth, Holub singled, was driven to second by junior Danie Brinkmann and scored a cushion run on a a double by sophomore Amanda Vaupel for the game's final run. Holub allowed three hits with 16 Ks to four walks to 29 batters.

In the nigthcap, FHSU took a 2-0 lead with junior Bianca Adame reaching on a single, stealing a base and then scoring on a wild pitch. Brinkmann also scored on a single from Vaupel.

The Lopers' run came in the third on an RBI single charged to Duran. Duran worked out of a jam in the fifth with runners at first and third.

The Tigers' other two runs came in the fifth, the first on an error at Loper shortstop. Holub also scored on an RBI from Brinkmann, a triple to left field.

Duran struck out three in the win with three walks and one earned run. Adame had three hits for the Tigers, while Brinkmann and Duran each had two.

Fort Hays is in tournament action this week, playing six games Friday through Sunday in Bentonville, Ark.
