Junior Kenedy Urbany winds up to pitch. Last season Urbany was selected for the NFCA All Region Team and second team All-LSC.

   Softball tumbled in a three game skid on April 15-14 against Texas A&M Commerce.
   Day one was a pitcher’s duel through both games as the Belles won the first game 1-0 before dropping the second 2-1. Sophomore pitcher Brandy Marlett dominated the Lady Lion batters in game one as she allowed two hits and tossed 13 strikeouts in her shutout win. Sophomore outfielder Brooke Mangold delivered the lone RBI for the Belles with her single in the sixth inning to score Ambra Hill.
Through the next three games, the Belles were outscored 12-5 by the Lady Lions.
   In game two, the Belles got off to a hot start as sophomore pitcher Kenedy Urbany launched a solo homerun to open the scoring for the Belles in the fourth inning. However, that was the only offense for the Belles in the game. The Lady Lions scored in the sixth to eventually forcing extra innings before a walk-off double off Urbany in the eighth inning giving the Lady Lions the game two win. Game three allowed for very little offense by the Belles as freshman Alexis Evans provided the lone run in the 4-1 loss with her solo homerun in the sixth inning. Urbany started the Belles off on the right foot in game four with her second solo homerun of the series in the first inning. The Lady Lions then followed Urbany’s lead with two homeruns of their own for five RBIs in the bottom of the first.
   Despite Ambra Hill stealing home in the fifth and freshman Bailey Wallace’s RBI single in the seventh, it was too little too late for the Belles as they fell 6-3 in game four. The Belles are now 30-19 on the season as they return home for their final series on April 22 and 23 against Cameron University. If they win just one game of the series, they will head to the NCAA South Central Regional tournament set for May 6-7.
