Dickerson Breaks RBI Record in Win Against SNU

April 19, 2008


Dickerson, an outfielder from Carrollton, Texas, eclipsed the record of Rori Logan, who drove in 47 in 1981. The 1981 mark was the oldest single season record on the books.

The Lady Bison opened the scoring of the second game in the first inning when Jami Pate singled and scored on a two-out single by Brooke Stevens.

The lead swelled to 3-0 in the fourth on a run-scoring error and an RBI single by Pate.

Southern Nazarene closed to within 3-2 in the top of the sixth before the Lady Bison broke out for three runs in the bottom of the sixth.

Brittney Day lofted a sacrifice fly ahead of Dickerson's two-out, two-run double to plate RBIs 47 and 48 and give OBU the final margin of victory.

Pate, Bobbi Day and Vanessa Fortune had two hits each in OBU's 10-hit offense.

Whitney Heltzel (8-6) went the distance for the win, gathering four strikeouts.

Southern Nazarene's Andrea Pare was a one-woman wrecking crew in the opener, shutting out OBU on five hits while hitting two two-run home runs to account for all her own run support.

Pate had two of OBU's hits.

Alicia Avilla (4-7) took the loss for the Lady Bison.

Now 19-29, the Lady Bison return to action Tuesday with a home doubleheader against Northwestern Oklahoma State University.
