SOFTBALL SET TO CLOSE OUT FALL SCHEDULE WITH HOME DOUBLEHEADER ON THURSDAY
October 4, 2016
MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin softball team will put a wrap on the fall portion of the preseason schedule with a doubleheader against Dyersburg State Community College on Thursday, Oct. 6. First pitch from Bettye Giles Field is scheduled for 3 p.m. with Game 2 to follow shortly afterwards.
The Skyhawks are looking to end the fall season on a strong note after picking up victories in the team’s first six contest. After having the annual Skyhawk Fall Classic cancelled due to weather concerns, the Skyhawks shifted their plans to maximize the eight-game schedule.
UT Martin began the fall with a doubleheader sweep of Jackson State, 9-3 and 10-1, respectively. The Skyhawks then hosted Bethel later in the week, posting a 16-4 victory. The squad would then hit the road, knocking off Martin Methodist and Motlow State 5-0 at the Columbia State Tournament. The Skyhawks then traveled to Bethel on Wednesday, Sept. 28 where they pulled off a 6-5 win.
