The Lady Govs are a perfect 5-0 so far this fall and are outscoring their opponents 46 to 9, while collecting 10-or-more hits in four of the five games played.

“We just want to come out this last doubleheader and be sharper on some of the things that we may not have been as sharp on as we need to be,” Austin Peay coach Stephanie Paris said. “At the plate, in the circle, on defense, we just want to wrap up the games being really sharp and executing all the things we’ve worked on and go out on a high note.”

Offensively, six different Lady Govs are averaging over a hit a game — while as a group the team has collected 21 total extra-base hits — defensively they have yet to make an error and the pitching staff has a combined earned run average of 2.10.

“We are light years ahead of where we were last year,” Paris said. “Our softball IQ is stronger that it was last year and our overall competitiveness, our physical abilities, everything is just better than we were last year.”

After the Volunteer State doubleheader, the Lady Govs will not return to action until they open their 2014 regular-season schedule February 7th at the University of South Alabama tournament in Mobile, AL.
