Sixth in OVC, softball to play SIU-E this weekend

The Golden Eagle softball team will host conference foe, SIU-Edwardsville, in a three-game series this weekend. The series starts a seven-game home stand for the Golden Eagles.

Tech is coming off a disappointing trip in Charleston, Ill. last weekend where they dropped both ends of a doubleheader to Eastern Illinois last Sunday, 7-2 and 3-1, following being rained out on Saturday. Their mid-week matchup with Cumberland was rained out as well.

SIU-Edwardsville is also coming off a disappointing weekend on the road as they dropped the final two games of the series to Jacksonville State after winning the opener. They did win their mid-week matchup on Wednesday as they shut out Saint Louis 2-0 at home.

Both teams are battling for position within the conference with less than a month remaining in the regular season.

The Golden Eagles currently sit in sixth place with an OVC record of 11-11 and overall record of 17-24.

SIU-Edwardsville is right on their tails in seventh place in the conference with a 10-10 record in the OVC, 19-23 overall.

The series kicks off with a doubleheader on Saturday at 1 p.m. and the third game will be on Sunday at 1 p.m.
