A new coach and a host of new players finally took the field for the Georgia Southern softball program over the weekend.

The Eagles grabbed a win against Binghamton, Radford and East Tennessee State to go along with two losses during the event.

The bats were electric for GS this weekend, as the team scored a combined 19 runs. Nine different Eagles recorded at least one hit over the weekend.

Chattanooga transfer infielder Ashleigh Duty and junior outfielder Ashleigh Duty both concluded the event batting .429 with three hits.

Madi Banks, Janai Conklin and Faith Shirley all finished the weekend with a batting average of .300 or above, while Jess Mazur highlighted the weekend with two home runs.

Four different Eagle pitchers saw action over the weekend. However, Kyleigh Richardson highlighted the play on the mound with a complete game shutout in a 4-0 win over Radford.

GS currently sits at 3-2 on the season and will host another home event next weekend. The G.A.T.A. Challenge will begin on Friday and the Eagles will play North Dakota State, UT Martin and Main over the weekend.
