Hog softball status?

How has the softball team progressed now that they have entered the SEC competition?

They lost all three games at No. 9 Alabama last weekend, which included a doubleheader Sunday. They host No. 14 Tennessee this weekend.

Women (ranked 25th) hit a grand slam in the third inning Friday for all their runs in a 4-3 win over 14th-ranked Tennessee. It was our first win over a ranked team in three years, as well as our first SEC win over any team not from South Carolina in three years. Record now 20-5/1-3.

Thanks for the update, Swine. That’s great news! I really hope they can build on their early success, turn the SEC corner and really be competitive.

Walk-off win today over Tennessee, 2-1. First SEC series win since 2013. Record now 21-5/2-3. Going for the sweep Sunday at 11 a.m.

Game two against Alabama they had the lead but lost in extra innings (9 innings). Even though they were swept I was impressed with the improvement.
