Softball, baseball teams eager to extend win streaks

AUM’s softball and baseball teams each built momentum in Gulf South Conference play with three-game sweeps of Mississippi College over the weekend and will try to maintain it this weekend when they host Alabama Huntsville.

The 17th-ranked Warhawks softball team opened its series with a dramatic 4-3 win that ended with back-to-back seventh-inning home runs from Shelby Newsome and Margaret Morgan. Late-game heroics proved to be the theme of the Warhawks’ series sweep, with Molly Cobb’s two-run homer in the sixth inning of Monday’s Game 3 making the difference in a 4-2 win.

AUM (17-5, 7-2 in GSC) will face UAH for a Saturday doubleheader at 1 p.m., with the series finale Sunday at 1 p.m.

The baseball team improved to 15-9 (5-4 in league play) with its three-game sweep of Mississippi College and gave head coach Marty Lovrich his 200th career win in the process.

Zach Dew led the Warhawks at the plate in the series, batting .417 with a pair of homers, three runs and six RBIs.

AUM will open its series against UAH Friday night at 6, with a Saturday doubleheader set for 1 p.m. at Q.V. Lowe Field.
