Lady Blazers extend winning streak

The Lady Blazers softball team extended their amazing winning streak to 15 games Wednesday night by sweeping the West Georgia Wolves in a double header at home.

 VSU softball advances to (8-0) in conference play atop of the Gulf South Conference and 21-2 on the season.

 West Georgia had no answer for the Lady Blazers in the first game of the doubleheader thanks to their success swinging the bats winning 13-0.

 UGA transfer Alanna Hadley like she has done all season indeed pitched another superb game.

 Hadley, who picked up her second Gulf South Conference pitcher of the week award, moves to a team leading 10-1 record.

 The senior ace only allowed two hits, struck-out six and she did not allow a run during her outing.

 The first game could not have started any better for VSU as they loaded the bases early with a double by junior Morgan Johnson in between two walks.

 The Blazers then began their stroll by hitting three two-run singles off the bats of Marti Littlefield, Ashley Steinhilber, and April Hutchens.

Senior Samantha Posey ended up doubling her home run total on the season to four by hitting a solo shot to lead off the second and a two-run homer in the third.

 The Lady Blazers final runs of the first game came off a passed ball in the third inning that scored Steinhilber and Fran Johnson.

 The fourth inning was the only inning that VSU went scoreless in the first game.

The game was then ended early after the top of the fifth due to the mercy rule.

  The Lady Blazers pounded everything at the plate throughout the game, arguably their best display of offense this season knocking in 13 runs off of 13 hits.

 The second game was much more competitive from West Georgia and due to a great pitching performance by junior Courtney Gunby, the Wolves didn’t score enough to split the series. The impressive defense the Lady Blazers displayed was  enough to pull out the win 2-1.

 Fran Johnson drove in the first run for the Blazers in the bottom of the second after a single from captain Marti Littlefield.

 Then Posey hit a sac fly in the third to score Courtney Albritton, who doubled earlier in the inning.

 The Wolves mustered up a little bit of a comeback in the top of the sixth, but it proved to be too little too late. 

 The Lady Blazers defense easily closed out the top of the seventh with three straight outs and sent West Georgia home with two defeats.
