Tuesday, March 20, 2012

SHREVEPORT – Centenary goes for a massive upset Thursday afternoon, traveling to No. 8 UT-Tyler in American Southwest Conference softball action.

The squads will face off in a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m. Centenary will host UT-Tyler in a doubleheader April 9.

The Ladies garnered their first win of the year at home Thursday with a 6-3 win over Millsaps, but have dropped three straight since to fall to 1-14 and 0-8 in ASC play. Texas-Tyler is 13-3, breaking the top 10 in the Division-III softball rankings.

Keya Brandon and Lauren Swift top the Ladies batting charts as the only players batting better than .300. Brandon holds a team-best .333 mark and a .444 slugging percentage. She’s knocked nine hits in 27 at-bats. Swift’s .304 average trails only Brandon, but has a team-high 14 hits in 46 at-bats, also a team high.

Reggie Salvatore leads Centenary in the circle with a 6.92 earned run average, but the senior from Shreveport is still looking for her first win this year. Lynsi Unruh tallied the team’s lone win after a strong outing in the win over Millsaps.

Unruh has been the mainstay in the circle, leading the team in innings pitched (44) and strikeouts (14).

The Ladies continue the busy week with a doubleheader at LeTourneau Friday at 4 p.m. before beginning a six-game home stand March 31 against East Texas Baptist.
