The Nevada Lady Tigers softball team extended its season-opening winning streak to eight games with a 15-0 victory over Seneca Tuesday, at Bushwhacker Field.

Sophomore right-hander Christian Novak allowed a one-out double in the second inning and struck out five for her seventh win without a loss this fall.

Sophomore first baseman Tori Dahmer led the Lady Tigers' 10-hit offense with three hits and two RBIs. Olivia Culbertson was 2-for-3 with one RBI and Nikki O'Bryan, Mackenzie Pritchett, Jessica Neely, Tiffani Long and Paije Gibbs had one hit apiece. The two squads played a junior varsity game following the varsity, which ended in a 6-6 tie after three innings.

Nevada is 8-0 and will host Lamar, 2-0, at 5 p.m., today at Bushwhacker Field, weather permitting.
