LADY SALUQIS SOFTBALL TEAM LOSES TO JACKSON STATE AND COLUMBIA STATE

The Southwest softball was swept by Columbia State on Sunday afternoon in a doubleheader at the Appling Complex, losing 8-0 and 7-1. Last Friday, the Lady Saluqis lost to Jackson State by scores of 8-5 and 8-7. Southwest’s record currently stands at 14-24 on the season.

Against Jackson State, several Lady Saluqis had outstanding days at the plate. Sophomore shortstop Chrissy Odom went 4 for 4 in the first game, while Christi Morrison had five hits on the afternoon. Also with multiple hits in the doubleheader was Ginny Galloway (3 hits), Heather Bryant (2 hits, double, 2 RBI in game two), and Jennifer Davenport (2 hits). Game two starter Katie Cerrito pitched well despite the loss, scattering seven hits and allowing only one earned run in a complete seven inning game.
