The Lady Lions faced two opponents this week, with Saturday’s game against St. Andrews University (Laurinburg, N.C.) postponed until April 5, due to the rainy forecast.

The Lady Lions’ April 18 game against Rogers State University (Claremore, Okla.) was rescheduled for April 20 because of rain. In this double-header, the Lady Lions lost the first game 2-10 and lost the second 6-9.

Head Softball Coach Rocky Stinson attributed the loss to the perspective that Rogers State simply has a really solid team. They are currently undefeated and ranked number four in the nation.

The next day, the Lady Lions played against Cumberland University (Lebanon, Tenn.) who also proved to be tough opponents. They lost the first game 2-11 and the second 4-5.

This leaves the team with a current record of 8-14.

Katie Vaughn, second baseman, stepped away from her normal position to fill in this week. Since the catcher is injured, Vaughn played the position after not filling that role for three years. Also, she played right fielder for the first time ever, according to Stinson.

Stinson anticipates a winning streak starting this coming week.

The Lady Lions will be playing be hosted at University of the Cumberlands (Williamsburg, Ky.) April 27, Asbury University (Wilmore, Ky.) April 29 and Midway College (Midway, Ky.) April 30.
