Softball hosts Jackson State after walk-off win over Auburn
The Mississippi State softball team picked up its second SEC win in walk-off fashion Saturday against Auburn to give the Dogs momentum heading into Tuesday night’s game against the Jackson State Tigers.
The Tigers are coming off a 2-1 series victory against Alabama A&M over the weekend and are 19-21 overall on the season.
Off to their best start in March, clutch hitting powers Bulldogs
At 20-6 the Mississippi State softball team is off to its third best start in school history. The Bulldogs’ current 13-game non conference win streak is also the third best in school history, and State’s 11-2 start to March is the best start to the month of March ever.
Although the MSU pitching staff has received much of the praise this season — deservedly so as the staff leads the SEC in both opponent batting average and strikeouts — the Bulldog bats have come alive right when SEC play begins to heat up.
Owen makes immediate impact
Softball pitcher Alison Owen has been a Bulldog her entire college career but not a Mississippi State Bulldog.
Owen transferred from Georgia after her sophomore year to play at State. Owen said she loved her time at Georgia, but it was time for her to open up a new chapter in her life.
