Ladyjacks Host Lady Demons in Southland Showdown
March 21, 2014
NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The Stephen F. Austin softball team is ready to take on conference rival Northwestern State this weekend for a three-game series beginning Saturday afternoon. The Ladyjacks and Lady Demons will play a doubleheader at the SFA Softball Field starting at 1 p.m. Saturday with the series finale set for 1 p.m. Sunday.
Northwestern State (12-12, 4-2 SLC) comes into Nacogdoches after going 2-1 last weekend against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi at home and losing at Texas A&M on Tuesday.
The Lady Demons were picked to win the Southland Conference this year in a close vote by the league’s coaches. Northwestern State and McNeese State both received four first-place votes from the coaches.
SFA (12-14, 3-2) looks to bounce back from a pair of losses at Central Arkansas last weekend. The Ladyjacks could not finish the final game of that series with inclement weather halting the game during the first inning.
The Ladyjacks are undefeated at home this season with a perfect 5-0 record. SFA swept its first home conference series against Nicholls State and hopes to keep that home field advantage going this weekend against the Lady Demons.
Fans can buy tickets at the gate at the SFA Softball Field. Tickets are $4 for adults and $3 for children ages 9-18. Children under 8 years old get in free. SFA students get in free with their student ID.
