The Southern University softball team will host the Southeastern Louisiana University Lady Lions in a 3:00 pm game on Wednesday at Lady Jaguar field.
Southern (15-18, 8-5 SWAC) is coming off its first Southwestern Athletic Conference series loss, last weekend vs. the Prairie View A&M Lady Panthers. Still, the Lady Jaguars held on to their number one ranking in the Western Division.
Leading the Blue and Gold at the plate is true freshman Audrey Phillips, who has recorded a .389 batting average after 31 games. The first year star leads the conference with 44 hits. Sophomore Victoria Stewart is second on the team with .369 batting average and 38 hits.
Junior Lanaya Jenkins leads the Jags in pitching with a 4.29 earned run average and 87 strikeouts.
The game will be the final non-conference match-up of the 2009 season for Nancy Marshall's ball club.
