The Spring Hill College softball team defeated Miles College on March 25 in an SIAC doubleheader at home.

In the first game, the Lady Badgers came out on top, sweeping the Golden Bear 7-1. During the second game, the Badgers remained in the lead, 13-1, allowing them to continue their success and stay undefeated in the SIAC. 

Head Coach Hanna Lythberg said, “I think our pitching did a great job keeping us in both games & we did a great job of capitalizing on walks and strung a few timely hits together. I’m proud of the way the girls are playing offensive softball and how they’re playing as one!” Freshman Emma Curry and Redshirt Junior Alexandra Ballester took the mound for the Lady Badgers.

Not only did the Badgers come out with a win, but alumni from Spring Hill College’s original softball team came to campus to celebrate the 25 year anniversary of the softball team with current players. The first pitch of the day was thrown by the former head coach Coby Mackin.

The Lady Badgers will travel to Memphis, Tennessee April 1 to take on LeMoyne-Owen for an SIAC conference matchup.
