Motlow softball will end regular season at Walters State

Posted on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 11:00 am

LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — The Motlow Lady Bucks will complete the 2015 softball regular season when they travel to Morristown for a four-game series against TCCAA rival Walters State this weekend. Friday’s doubleheader is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. CST and Saturday’s twinbill will start at noon.

Motlow (25-13-2, 17-11) will try to shake off a disappointing showing against Chattanooga State last weekend after the Lady Bucks were swept by the visiting Lady Tigers. Chattanooga won Friday 8-0 and 11-1, then came back Saturday and swept Motlow 10-5 and 18-0.

Despite the four conference losses, the Lady Bucks are still in fourth place in the conference standings as teams prepare for the upcoming TCCAA/Region VII Tournament, scheduled to begin April 29 in Chattanooga.

Walters State (33-8, 25-5) has won 19 of its previous 21 games and is ranked No. 17 in the nation in the latest NJCAA poll. The Lady Senators, along with Chattanooga State and Columbia State, hold down the top three spots in the league standings heading into the final weekend of the regular season. Chattanooga and Columbia will meet this weekend in Chattanooga.
