Odessa College softball head coach Joel Prickett recorded the 500th win of his career Friday as the Lady Wranglers run-ruled Clarendon College 14-1 in five innings at the NJCAA Region V Championships at Texas Tech’s Rocky Johnson Field.

“It’s a cliché, but it was just another game,” Prickett said. “I’m excited about it and it’s a benchmark, but I honestly forgot about it. I was just excited we got the win and someone congratulated me on (the 500th win) and I said, ‘Oh yeah.’”

Clarendon’s Karina Juarez led off the game with a solo home run. Then the Lady Wranglers scored 14 unanswered runs, including an 11-run second, to break the game open.

Zoe Murillo, Payton Wood and Janessa Flynn all hit run-scoring doubles for OC and Flynn earned the win in the circle.

The Lady Wranglers face rival Midland College at 5:30 p.m. today in the second round. Midland defeated Howard College 4-0 on Friday.
