JSU Softball Preps for Big OVC Weekend
The Jacksonville State softball team has gotten off to a fast start this season. The Gamecocks are 17-6 as they enter the teeth of their conference schedule. The girls host two doubleheaders this weekend against Eastern Illinois (who won the regular season title last year) and SIU-Edwardsville who, like JSU, are off to a great start with 18 win on the season. The Gamecocks are led by the talents of five strong seniors and juniors like Alexandria native Sara Borders who has won the OVC Player of the Week for the last two weeks. However, the veterans have needed some help by newcomers and so far the young ones have responded. The Gamecocks host Eastern Illinois in a double-header on Saturday at 1:00pm and then face SIU-Edwardsville in another double-header Sunday also set for 1:00pm.
