The Lady Govs softball team hosted Ohio Valley Conference opponent Morehead State University at Cheryl Holt Field Saturday, April 4. APSU and Morehead State split the games, with Morehead State winning the first 4-2 and APSU taking the second 5-1.

Lady Gov pitcher Sidney Hooper recorded a loss in the first game, bringing her overall record to 2-6.

The Lady Govs scored two runs in the second inning to take a one-run lead against the Lady Eagles, and the score held until the bottom of the seventh inning when the Lady Eagles were up to bat.

The Lady Govs were unable to overcome the three-run inning by Morehead State, resulting in a loss for APSU.

In game two, Morehead State kept the momentum and got on the board early with a run in the first inning.

The Lady Govs were able to recover, however, and took the lead later in the first inning, never looking back.

Natalie Ayala allowed a run in the first inning, but only gave up five hits in the remaining six, earning her fourth win of the 2015 season.

The Lady Govs scored one run in the second inning and two in the sixth inning to secure the victory.

The win brought APSU’s record to 8-21 on the season (4-8 OVC).

APSU’s next homestand will be Wednesday, April 8, a doubleheader against the University of Evansville at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
