No. 4-seeded Ladyjacks gear up for Southland Conference Tournament

Emily Wolfe prepares for a pitch in a 6-3 win against Northwestern State in the first game of a doubleheader on April 26. The Ladyjacks are preparing for the Southland Conference tournament next.

The Ladyjacks are gearing up to play in the Southland Conference Tournament this week after losing their last series against Sam Houston State University, 2-1, on Sunday.

Next up for the Ladyjacks will be facing the winners of the first game between Central Arkansas and Southeastern Louisiana, which will be played at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Natchitoches, Louisiana. The winners and the Ladyjacks will play in the third game of the tournament at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

The tournament is double-elimination, so if the Ladyjacks win, they will play SHSU in game five at 11 a.m. Wednesday. If they lose

in game three, they will play in a game at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

SFA ended the season as the fourth seed with a record of 34-19 on the season and 18-9 in conference. In their last game, they went 6-28 on at bats while only gaining three runs on the day. SFA’s Alex Hedspeth, Emily Wolfe and Madison Clements were the only scorers on the team, and Lauren Becker brought in two of their hits and gained the only RBIs on the team.

Overall, both teams struggled to get hits, as they combined a total of 51 at bats but only 11 hits.

As SFA prepares for the SLC Tournament, the team needs to focus on closing out games and their defense on big hitters. Offensively, they need to turn more hits into runs.
