Eagles open GLVC play Saturday with new start time

EVANSVILLE, Ind.The University of Southern Indiana softball team opens GLVC play this weekend when it hosts the University of Missouri-St. Louis in a doubleheader Saturday at 3 p.m. and Quincy University in a doubleheader Sunday at noon. Saturday's doubleheader against Missouri-St. Louis was originally scheduled to start at noon, but was moved to 3 p.m. due to field conditions.

USI (13-9) has won three straight games and is 11-3 since starting the season 2-6 during the first two weekends of the season.

During the last 14 games, the Screaming Eagles are hitting .332 as a team and are averaging nearly 5.5 runs per game.

Senior first baseman Jenn Mullikin (Greenwood, Indiana) has posted a .421 batting average and eight RBIs in USI's last 14 games, while senior catcher Lisa Anderson (Chesterton, Indiana) and junior third baseman/pitcher Kristin Eickholt (Van Wert, Ohio) have accounted for a combined 23 runs batted in.

Eickholt also is 2-1 with a 1.67 ERA in the pitching circle during that span, while junior hurler Amy Harrison (Graceville, Florida) is 6-1 with a 2.70 ERA in USI's last 14 games.

Overall, Eickholt leads the Eagles with 16 RBIs and a 1.62 ERA, while Anderson and sophomore shortstop Ally McKinley (Sullivan, Indiana) have each recorded 15 RBIs. Harrison (7-3) leads USI in victories.

The Eagles will be without their All-Region centerfielder Kathy Wood (Lynnville, Indiana) for an indefinite period of time. Wood injured her knee in USI's 8-4 victory over St. Mary-of-the-Woods.

All of USI's home conference games will be broadcast on WSWI AM 820 and via the internet on www.820theedge.com. All of USI's home contests also feature live online stats at www.usi.edu/sports/sblive/xlive.htm.
