SOFTBALL HEADS TO COLLEGE OF CHARLESTON FOR HOLY CITY SHOWDOWNThe Chattanooga Mocs softball team travels to Charleston, S.C., for the Holy City Showdown March 11-13. UTC is 13-9 after a 6-5 win over Lipscomb on Wednesday.
Chattanooga faces Michigan State, No. 12 Georgia, Columbia, host College of Charleston and Charleston Southern this weekend.
"Obviously we have some tough games coming up, but we have to learn that if we stay up and put the ball in play, play some good defense, have some decent pitching and hang in the game, then we have a shot to win on the road," head coach Frank Reed stated.
The Mocs start the weekend against Michigan State Friday at 1:00 p.m. (E.S.T.). The two programs haven't played since 2000 when they faced each other at two tournaments that season. The Spartans won 4-1 and 1-0.
Michigan State is 10-9 coming off a 1-3 weekend at the Gamecock Invitational. The squad lost to Kennesaw State and South Carolina and split games with Connecticut.
UTC takes on Georgia Friday at 3:30 p.m. In the last matchup between the two squads, the Bulldogs won 4-3 on March 6, 2011 when they were ranked No. 1.
Georgia boasts an 18-2 record. Last weekend the squad went 4-1 at its home tournament, posting wins over Western Carolina, Jacksonville and Austin Peay and splitting contests with Minnesota. The Bulldogs beat Boston College 4-3 in ten innings on Wednesday.
Chattanooga plays Columbia Saturday at 10:00 a.m. in the first meeting between the two programs.
