LADY SALUQIS WIN TWO AT DYERSBURG STATE SOFTBALL PLAY-DAY
Release written by Keith Gentry


The Southwest softball team wrapped up its fall season by winning two out of three games on Friday, October 13 at the Dyersburg State Fall Play-Day in Dyersburg, Tennessee. After losing the first game 6-0 to Freed-Hardeman University, the Lady Saluqis came back to defeat Cumberland University 5-4 and Mid-Continent University 8-1.

In the Cumberland game, Brooke Hively and Jessica Hefflinger walked to open the game then both scored on a double to left-center field by Caryn Hubbard. Amanda Harlow drove in Hubbard with another two-base hit and later scored the Lady Saluqis’ fourth run on an error by the Cumberland first baseman. In the third inning, Harlow blasted a solo home run to centerfield for Southwest’s fifth run of the game.

Southwest saved its best game for last as the Lady Saluqis pounded out nine hits against Mid-Continent. Hubbard earned her second pitching victory of the day, allowing only five hits and one run over seven innings. It was a team effort for the Lady Saluqis as eight different players had base hits.

Several Southwest players had at least two hits on the day: Hively (3 hits, 2 runs), Harlow (3 hits, 2 runs, double, home run, 3 RBI), Hubbard (2 hits, 2 runs, double, 2 RBI), Staci Craig (2 hits, 2 runs, double) and Lindsey McGoff (2 hits, double, RBI).
