The Southwest softball team dropped a doubleheader on Sunday afternoon

sixth, Davenport singled in Erica Brich in the bottom of the sixth to
make the score 8-5 Motlow State. The Lady Bucks scored three more runs
in the top of the seventh, but the Lady Saluqis rallied again in the
bottom of the seventh, scoring two more times. With one out, Chrissy
Odom walked, followed by three straight singles by Ginny Galloway, Katie
