Against KWC, she went 4-8 with a run, three RBI, and three doubles in another doubleheader split.
 
On the season, Drake improved her average to .326, which is the best on her team according to official at-bats, and she also now leads the team with 23 RBI and nine doubles. She is third with 19 runs scored and second with four homeruns and 51 total bases as Kylee Gasper has a team-high ten bombs.
