May 6, 2009
Arlington, Texas -
SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT
SERIES INFO VS. LADY JACKS
LAST TIME VS. LADY JACKS
Hulme connected on a two-run homer in game one and followed that performance with a solo shot in game three.
SCOUTING STEPHEN F. AUSTIN
Lauren Luetge (10-11) recorded the win, pitching a complete game, allowing one run on six hits and fanning four.
Before facing UTSA, SFA's last win was in game one versus Texas State, 2-0 on Apr. 25 in San Marcos, Texas.
Six Ladyjacks were named to the 2009 All-Southland Conference softball team, and Stephen F. Austin's Kayla Gutowski earned the SLC Hitter of the Year award.
Juniors Briana Bishop and Kendal Harper, along with sophomore Monika Covington and Gutowski, a freshman, were each named to the first team, giving SFA more selections on that squad than any other team in the conference. Senior Kim Daley and sophomore Ashley Struchtemeyer earned spots on the second team.
Texas State tied the Ladyjacks with six players total on the All-SLC teams, but no team in the league had as many first- and second-team selections as SFA.
Cara Hulme, MAVS TOP HURLER
Hulme's talents have just not been restricted to pitching as she leads the Mavericks with eight home runs and 20 RBI.
The junior led the Mavericks to sweeps against Northwestern State at Allan Saxe Field and two over Stephen F. Austin.
Samantha Chumchal LEADS UTA IN BATTING
In the month of April, Chumchal recorded a .444 batting average, connecting on 12 hits including one double, four home runs and driving in six RBI.
Chumchal connected on a pair of home runs in the Sam Houston State series, and solo homers against McNeese State and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
