EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – Due to weather issues, the SIUE softball schedule has evolved.
SIUE Head Coach Sandy Montgomery was informed Thursday that the five games at the Ole Miss Red & Blue Classic have been cancelled.
The Cougars have been able to secure two games for Saturday in Troy, Alabama, where they played two games two weeks ago. SIUE faces UAB at 11:30 a.m. and host Troy at 4:30 p.m. In addition, SIUE will travel to Oxford, Mississippi, to face Ole Miss in a 4 p.m. game Sunday and a 3 p.m. game Monday.
SIUE enters the weekend with a 2-0 record.
Montgomery said she was pleased with the poise showed by her young team, which started three freshman in game one of the season.
"We got good pitching and played good defense," said Montgomery. "We really came out and attacked the ball and hit the ball well."
With the Cougars being idle since defeating Valparaiso and Alabama State Feb. 9th, Montgomery said she has focused on the fundamentals with her team.
"We went right back to the drawing board and started over," said Montgomery. "We had to continue to keep everyone sharp."
