USA women remain unbeaten in softball

Hansen drives in a run during Americans' 15-0 rout of Belize

Stanford sophomore Ashley Hansen recorded a hit in four at bats during the United States senior softball team's 15-0 victory over Belize at the Pan Am Qualifier in Maracay, Venezuela on Wednesday.

The Americans hit eight triples in the contest and have 19 over their eight games in the tournament. They also have 23 doubles and 10 home runs.

K'Lee Arredondo took over the team lead in batting average after collecting hits in all four of her at bats. She's at .769 (10-for-13), just ahead of Megan Langenfeld's .750 average.

The U.S. has now outscored their opponents by a 111-0 margin, and has out-hit them 109-2. The Americans have recorded 200 total bases.

The U.S. plays its final group contest against unbeaten Cuba on Thursday. The playoff round should be significantly tougher with the likes of Canada and NCAA Player of the Year Danielle Lawrie, who led Washington to the national title in the spring.

The undefeated Canadians have outscored their opponents by a 76-6 margin and have used three different pitchers. Victoria Hayward, who attended Mountain View High, is the team's youngest player.

Host Venezuela is also unbeaten. Something will have to give when the two countries meet Thursday in their final group contest.
