Warhawks double sweep Grambling in Sun Belt Conference

Softball took down local rival Grambling State in a double header, and they now have a three-game winning streak. After a 4-2 win, senior Amber Coons tossed a no-hitter, tying her career high of eight strikeouts in the second game as the Warhawks won 8-0.

This matchup against the rival Tigers gives the Warhawks momentum as they move into confernece play.

 “What you saw tonight, especially going into conference, is exciting because for the first time, we’re firing on all cylinders,” Head Coach Molly Fichtner said. 

Junior Korie Kreps was the sole Warhawk to finish with multiple hits in their first matchup. She finished 2-for-2, having two runs and an RBI. Sophomore Kassidy Giddens struck out six Grambling hitters, while allowing just two runs on four hits. 

ULM took the lead first once again in game two. ULM got hot offensively early, with three runs coming in the first inning alone. 

ULM had another multi-hit inning in the second. Giddens would hit a solo home run to cap off the second inning with the Warhawks up 8-0. Coons would keep Grambling hitless for the entire game.

ULM was led at the plate by the trio of Kreps (2-3, 2 runs, double), Edwards (2-2, RBI, 2 runs) and Giddens (2-2, 3 RBI, run, HR). Four more Warhawks finished with a hit.

ULM enters conference play with a three-game series against Sun Belt rival Coastal Carolina. 

 ULM will see the Tigers again this season. They travel to Grambling for another double-header on April 6.
