SOSU Softball Swept on Sunday at HSU

For just the second time in the four years of the Great American Conference, Southeastern lost a four-game weekend series, doing so after dropping both ends of a double header at Henderson State on Sunday, falling 4-0 and 3-1 in Arkadelphia, Ark.

The losses dropped the Savage Storm to 30-21 overall on the season and 24-10 in Great American Conference play.

Depending on the outcome of East Central's weekend series, SE will hold either the No. 2 or 3 seed in next week's GAC Tournament April 30 through May 2 in Bentonville, Ark.

Jessica Seay tossed a complete game in the opener and was hit for four runs, three earned, on eight hits with a pair of strikeouts.

Offensively the Storm stranded eight runners, with Jessica Simmons collecting three of the team's four hits. Sydney Kramer added the other one.

SE left runners in scoring position in four of the seven innings, while HSU posted a run in the second, two more in the third and another in the fourth to build up the 4-0 lead that would be the final.

In the nightcap Seay tossed her second complete game of the day and allowed three runs on six hits with one strikeouts, but was handed her second-straight loss.

Haley Strawn led the way with three hits, while Simmons added two more.

Jacee Bennett picked up the team's other hit and collected an RBI.

A run in the first and two more in the fourth would put HSU up 3-0, but the Storm looked to rally in the top of the seventh, loading the bases with no outs before a pinch-hitting Bennett singled home Seay to close the gap to 3-1.

The was as close as the Storm would get as the Reddies would turn a double play to get out of trouble in the inning and hand SE the 3-1 loss.
