When Calesha Shelley gets on base for the Bethune-Cookman University softball team, good things usually happen.

The Armijo High graduate and starting junior left fielder for the Wildcats scored six runs, including three in a 10-4 win over South Carolina State, in helping BCU go 3-1 last week.

Shelley, who’s batted leadoff in all 152 games game of her three-year career, batted.375 last week with a pair of two-hit games, giving her 12 multi-hit outings on the season.

Two of her hits were doubles, giving her six extra-base hits this season, matching her totals for 2012 and 2013.

Shelley is batting .320, up from last season’s .303 and 2012’s .294, and leads the team in at-bats (128), runs scored (26), hits (41), triples (2) and stolen bases (13 in 15 attempts).

After losing their first five games and 11 of their first 12, the Wildcats (15-23) have gone 14-12 and are tied for first place in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference’s Southern Division at 5-1.

Jordan Wallace (Fairfield) had a two-run single and later scored as California (20-14, 3-4 Pac-12) extended its winning streak to 10 by scoring all of its runs in the fourth inning of a 9-0 blanking of Pacific. The Golden Bears were then swept in a three-game series by Arizona State as Cheyenne Cordes (Rodriguez) batted .308 (4 for 13) with three runs and three RBIs. Two of her RBIs came on a two-run homer in a 7-2 loss to the Sun Devils.
