After a nine-game road trip to Texas over Spring Break, the softball team is back at Eagle field for a three-game series with the Mavericks. They will also host Jacksonville on Sunday afternoon.

Georgia Southern’s softball team continues Sun Belt conference play this Friday as they get set to face the UT Arlington Mavericks in a three-game series at Eagle Field. The first game is stated to start at 4 p.m. followed by the second ball at 6 p.m. The last game will be played Saturday at 12 p.m.

The Eagles come into the series with an overall record of 15-13 and are currently in 4th place in the Sun Belt standings. The Mavericks come into Eagle Field with an overall record of 22-4 but are currently in 7th place in the conference standings with a 1-2 record.

They are looking to climb back into the win column after a tough road loss to the Texas Tech Red Raiders out in Lubboch on March 19.

The Mavericks are also in need of another win if they want to climb out of the bottom half of the standings and contend for a conference championship.

The Eagles are undefeated this year at home, winning all four of their games, so they’ll to try and extend that home win streak as the Sun Belt schedule advances.

Lydia Witkowski leads the team with 36 hits while Sandra Mendoza leads the Mavericks with 41 hits, so look to these two playmakers when the ball game is in the deciding moments.
