The West Texas A&M Lady Buffs swept UTPB on Tuesday afternoon at Schaeffer Park.

WT won game one 4-3 thanks to strong pitching from Rita Hokianga who matched her career-high with 15 strikeouts.

The bats went to work in game two as the Lady Buffs scored eight runs on their way to an 8-1 win.

West Texas A&M will host Angelo State Friday and Saturday in a four-game series.  The winner of that series will win the regular season Lone Star Conference title and will host the LSC Softball tournament.
