Kay Brokering, a Shelbyville graduate and King University junior, helped her team extended their winning streak to six games with a sweep of Barton College on Monday afternoon.

The Tornado took game one 9-1 before coming back to win game two, 3-2.

Brokering had an impressive showing in Game 1, driving in five runs on two hits, including a pair of doubles.

In the third inning, Brokering ripped a double that scored Katie McCann to highlight the three-run inning that put the Tornado ahead 4-0.

Brokering delivered once again in the fourth inning with a bases loaded double to left-center field that scored all three runners to give King a 7-1 lead.

The junior leads the team with a .420 average at the plate. She has six home runs, 13 doubles and 39 RBIs.

Brokering led the King University softball team to a 4-0 record during the week, hitting .600 and driving in six runs. That effort earned her Conference Carolinas Player of the Week honors for the second time this season.

Weber finished with a hit in the first game. For the season, the freshman is second among the team’s starters with a .429 batting average. She has 24 RBIs, seven doubles and one home run.
