Madrid having strong spring for Lady Commodores

Gulf Coast State College freshman Cyrina Madrid may be the shortest member of the Lady Commodores softball team, but she’s been standing tall throughout the spring season.

Madrid, who is listed as just five feet two inches in the roster, has come out swinging, posting a .345 batting average, with 28 runs batted in, 32 runs scored and 16 stolen bases, caught stealing just one time.

The red-shirted freshman second baseman, a graduate of Wewahitchka High School, has also shown herself strong in the field, with 1 error out of 52 chances. She’s had 31 putouts and 20 assists, including five double plays.

She’s played in 29 games, with 92 appearances, and walked eight times as she smacked 29 hits, including four doubles, and three triples. She’s struck out just 10 times.

The Lady Commodores have posted a 27-5 record this spring, and are on a 10-game win streak. In the 32 games they have played, they have amassed 242 runs, are swinging the bats at a .363 average and have tallied 13 home runs.
