The baseball and softball teams have continued to hit away as they draw closer to their postseasons.
The baseball team has a record of 26-13-1, while the softball team holds a 39-7 record and is ranked No. 13 in the April 10 NAIA poll.
Several softball players’ efforts have not gone unnoticed this year. The CCAC awarded sophomore Hannah Gardner as Player of the Week and senior Katie Hannagan as Pitcher of the Week April 2.
Freshman Erika Tatum and senior Jordan Reynolds received the honor earlier this season.
All four players have played key roles in helping the Lady Tigers to a 11-1 CCAC record. They lead the conference with eight games left before the CCAC tournament in May.
The baseball team is currently second in the CCAC North Division behind St. Francis University (Ill.). They boast a 17-5 conference record as they wind down their season and look to the conference tournament in May.
