Lady Canes Sweep Lander
Georgia Southwestern softball coach Eddie Ward said his team hasnt worked a lot with the bunt steal this season. Senior Jessi Croft doesnt even remember hearing it called in practice. But Ward called it on Saturday in the Lady Hurricanes second game against Lander, and it worked to perfection as Cherelle Pullen scored from second base on Tiffany Milstids bunt for a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth. After Lander tied the game in the sixth, it went into extra innings and Kassi Reneau drove in the winning run in the eighth to lift GSW to a doubleheader sweep. The Lady Hurricanes won both games by 2-1 scores.
