OLLU SOFTBALL STAGES A COMEBACK TO PREVENT SWEEP BY LSU-ALEXANDRIA
OLLU softball team trailed 0-3 through the seventh inning of the third game against LSU-Alexandria (LSUA) on April 10. The Red River Athletic Conference (RRAC) opponent, which is second in the conference at one-and-a-half games behind league-leader Texas A&M University – Texarkana, defeated the Saints the first two games of the three-game conference series 2-1 and 5-1. Hoping not to be swept by the Generals, the Saints prevailed to make a comeback in the top of the seventh to score four runs. Ciera Martinez (SR/San Antonio, Texas) started in the circle and was relieved at the bottom of the third by Angela Ramirez (JR/Converse, Texas). Martinez came back in the bottom of the seventh inning to replace Kelly Anne Salinas (SO/Laredo, Texas), and she was able to prevent the Pilots from scoring to give the Saints the 4-3 win.Salinas earned the win, while Martinez took the save.
Head Coach Bruce Lenington said, “I was really proud of the way our women battled all weekend, but putting up four runs, in our last at-bat to get a win, says a ton about the growth of our team.”
