The Abilene Christian softball team will be eager to play this weekend after their scheduled double header against St. Mary’s University on Wednesday was canceled due to inclement weather.
The team returns home to Wells field after being on the road the past two weeks, looking to play Lone Star Conference foe Cameron University in a three-game series.
The first game starts tonight at 6 p.m. Tomorrow’s doubleheader starts at noon.
After coming off three losses to West Texas A&M this past weekend the ‘Cats look to gain momentum coming home.
The Aggies of Cameron have a chip on their shoulder looking to upset the team after they swept Texas A&M Kingsville this past weekend.
The Aggies look to start pitcher Samantha Betts, who ranks second in the LSC with 132 strikeouts over 132.2 innings pitched this season.
The ‘Cats and the Aggies have a long history, with ACU leading Cameron 32-17 overall, including last season’s two out of three wins in the series.
Cameron has been a team known to upset. The Aggies beat Tarleton State and University of Incarnate Word earlier this year, but have been swept by Angelo State University.
The teams will meet for the first time this season and after last year’s embarrassment in Lawton, Oklahoma.
The Aggies have a solid .300 team batting average, but it’s the circle where they struggle most.
With big hitters like Courtney Flanary, Lyndi Smith and Keanna Winkfield, the team hopes to be successful on the offensive side.
The team looks to return to the win column this weekend after losing the past four games.
Usually after such a streak, the ‘Cats will bounce right back.
The team would like to reverse their now 5-10 conference record with the last few games they have this season, which by the looks of the rest of their season could be likely.
With only 12 games left this season, all against conference opponents, the ‘Cats look to compete in every last one of them.
Coach Reeves always tells his players, “Anyone can beat anyone on any given day.” The team intends to do so.
