Eagles postpone UW-Parkside doubleheader to Monday,
Open GLVC home schedule Sunday against No. 21 Lewis
EVANSVILLE, Ind.—The threat of inclement weather has forced the University of Southern Indiana softball team to postpone its 2009 GLVC home-opening doubleheader against the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
USI and UW-Parkside, which were originally slated to play Saturday, will play a twinbill Monday at noon at the USI Softball Field.
The Screaming Eagles (8-22, 0-4 GLVC) will now open their 2009 GLVC home schedule Sunday when they host No. 21 Lewis University in a noon doubleheader.
USI is looking for its first GLVC win of the year after a tough road stretch that saw the Eagles drop both sets of their twinbills at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and Missouri University of Science and Technology.
Junior outfielder Lindsay Raikes (Speedway, Indiana) leads the Eagles with a .296 batting average and brings a four-game hitting streak into this weekend's contests. Sophomore first baseman Brittany DeWeese (Evansville, Indiana) has belted a team-high four home runs and driven in a team-best 13 runs.
The Flyers of Lewis, who have won three straight games, enter Sunday's doubleheader with a 23-10 overall mark and a 5-3 record in GLVC play. The Rangers of UW-Parkside are 10-12 overall, 4-4 in the GLVC, and have lost two straight heading into their doubleheader Sunday at Kentucky Wesleyan College.
