Homestand Continues With Gamecocks, Golden Eagles

SIUE Softball

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE softball has two special promotions planned for this weekend's matchups against Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech.

The Cougars, 17-14 overall and 7-3 in the Ohio Valley Conference, welcome the Gamecocks, 24-16 overall and 11-1 in OVC play, Saturday for a 1 p.m. doubleheader. A student tailgate will have free food and drinks one hour prior to game time, courtesy of Enclave.

On Sunday, it is Pink Zone Day for breast cancer awareness. SIUE softball, who will be playing in pink jerseys, face the Golden Eagles, 14-25 overall and 5-7 in OVC play, in a 1 p.m. doubleheader. Free Pink Zone T-shirts and bags will be given away to the first 100 fans.

At the week's completion, SIUE will have competed in seven home games in six days. Earlier this week, the Cougars swept Eastern Illinois and then dropped a 1-0 decision to Saint Louis in nonconference play.

SIUE softball Head Coach Sandy Montgomery said she expects her players to step up against Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech.

"Jacksonville State is on a roll at 11-1 in conference play," said Montgomery. "They always are a competitive, gritty team so this weekend is going to be a grind. With Tennessee Tech on Sunday, every game is important so we have to show up."

SIUE's Alyssa Heren leads the offense in OVC play with a .438 batting average. Freshman shortstop Alana Cobb-Adams is next with a .429 batting average.

Tess Eby and Reagan Curtis are tops for the Cougars with eight RBIs in league competition.

Emily Ingles leads the Cougars' pitching staff with a 5-1 record in OVC play with a 2.29 earned run average.

While SIUE has a .286 batting average in OVC play, Jacksonville State leads the league with a .313 mark in conference action.

Jacksonville State's Taylor Beshears is among the league leaders in OVC play with a .439 batting average.

The Gamecocks' Faith Sims leads the OVC in league wins with six. She has a 1.20 ERA in OVC play.

Tennessee Tech's Taylor Waldrop has yet to allow an earned run in OVC play through 20 2/3 innings pitched. She is 4-0.

The Golden Eagles are ninth in OVC play with a team batting average of .247 but have the most hits in an OVC game this season after drilling 24 digs off UT Martin back in March.
