Lady Blazers split double-header

The Lady Blazers split a double header with the University of West Florida on Sunday, winning game one 5-0 and coming up short in game two 4-2.
Even with the mental errors and struggle at bat, junior Holly Satterfield was able to improve her pitching record to 22-2 on the season by pulling through in the first game against the Lady Argonauts.
“I feel pretty good about it,” Satterfield said. “It looks good for the team and helps us succeed as a whole.”
Continuing to dominate at the plate, freshman Morgan Johnson hit 2-1 in game one and 2-2 in the second game to pull through for the team offensively.
“I’ve just been going and practicing a little more,” Johnson said. “I try to stay levelheaded and focused, and do my job for my teammates.”
The team ran away with game one, but was unable to answer UWF in game two.
“We were complacent in that game,” Johnson said, “and we tried to come back too late.
“We just didn’t hit well and made mental errors,” she said.
Although the team experienced some disappointment after game two, Satterfield said, “We’re not happy with it, but we have to live with it.
“We are number two on our side,” she said. “As long as we win the conference championship we will host regionals, and then hopefully super regionals.”
As the softball team heads to Mississippi this weekend for the conference tournament, the Lady Blazers understand that it will be tough, but Satterfield believes the team has what it takes to take home the crown.
“I’m 100 percent confident,” Satterfield said. “I think we are more physically talented than any other team I’ve ever seen. We are about as talented as it gets.”
Although the team has put together some impressive performances within the last few weeks of the regular season, Johnson admits that they need to stay focused on the main goal heading into post season play.
“Ultimately we want to win the tournament,” she said. “We need to focus on the games, not the rankings.”
The Lady Blazers take the field Friday April 30 at 12 p.m. against Ouachita Baptist to begin conference tournament play.
