Seaman rode a pair of dominating pitching performances to an 11-0, 10-0 Centennial League softball sweep over Topeka West Thursday at Optimist Field.
Viking junior Skylar Duncan turned in a one-hit, 11-strikeout performance in the first game while sophomore Aspen Burgardt followed that up with a 3-hitter in the nightcap as Seaman improved to 4-2 on the season.
Senior Raigan Kramer and junior Emma Smith both doubled twice in the first game while seniors Callee Dempewolf and MaKenna Dechand doubled in the second game.
Seaman jumped on top with two runs in the bottom of the first in the first game and added three runs in the second, two in the third and four in the fourth to end the game after four and a half innings due to the 10-run spread rule.
The Vikings scored twice in the first and once in the second to take an early 3-0 lead in the second game and added a run in the fifth before ending the game with a six-run sixth.
Topeka West fell to 1-8 on the season, 1-6 in the league.
