Ashlynn Mayfield and Hannah Harris each had a pair of extra base hits to highlight Stephenville's first set of softball scrimmages at Brock Thursday night.
The Honeybees spent an hour and 20 minutes on the field with Brock then went the same time against Weatherford, getting in more than eight innings of work.
"It went well overall. I was pleasantly surprised how well we hit the ball after being in the gym for the whole week because of the cold weather," said third-year Stephenville head coach Rus Mayes. "It was a good starting point, a good foundation to build on. Now we have to get out in the warmer weather and go to work, because we're behind after being in the gym all week."
Lubbock Christian signee and returning all-state outfielder Mayfield had a triple and a double, while Harris had two doubles including one that cleared the bases.
"Mayfield was Mayfield and some other girls hit the ball well, too," said Mayes. "We even had a couple freshmen step up and get some hits, which was good to see."
Senior pitcher Ciara Dittfurth handled all the work from the circle.
"She's primarily our only pitcher right now and she did well," Mayes said. "You could tell fatigue set in late in the last scrimmage with Brock, but early on she was throwing it well."
The Bees have two more scrimmages before opening their season. They travel to Cleburne Thursday and host Eastand and Bangs Saturday at McCleskey Field in City Park.
The Bees' season and home opener is set for 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 against Abilene Wylie. SHS hosts the Honeybee Invitational tournament Feb. 20-22.
