The Southwest softball team traveled to the mid-state area over the weekend to open conference play against two of the top teams in the Tennessee Junior and Community College Athletic Association and were defeated in all four games. The losses dropped the Lady Saluqis’ overall record to 6-14 on the season.

On Saturday night, Southwest was defeated by Columbia State 13-0 and 8-0. The Lady Saluqis were handcuffed all night by the pitching of Columbia State, reaching base only three times all night by base hits. On Sunday afternoon, Southwest was defeated by Volunteer State by scores of 8-0 in both games.

The Lady Saluqis return to action on Tuesday, March 22 against Coahoma Community College in a 2 p.m. doubleheader at the Appling Complex.
