Colorado Mesa’s Makayla Kovac smacks the ball over the fence for a two-run home run in the bottom of the second inning of Thursday’s game against Adams State at Bergman Field.

Belt-high, let it fly

Kovac rips two home runs in Mavs' rout of Adams State

The kind of pitches Makayla Kovac got to hit Thursday night against Adams State University weren’t the kind she expected to see. Not that she’s complaining.
Kovac, the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference’s career home run leader, continued her recent domination of the Grizzlies’ pitching staff in the first round of the RMAC tournament at Bergman Field. She hit home runs to both sides of the field — almost a month to the day after hitting a pair of home runs in one game at Adams State — to set the tempo during the Mavericks’ 9-1 run-rule victory.
“I really thought after the game I had down at Adams that they weren’t going to give me anything,” said Kovac, who increased her RMAC-leading home run total to 17. “I was preparing anyway, and I was just waiting for something on the belt that I could drive.
“So yeah,” she added with a beaming smile. “It was a good day. That was fun.”
