LAST TIME VS. LADY JACKS
The Mavs recorded a sweep over the Lady Jacks in Nacogdoches.

Cara Hulme and Heather Fortenberry led UTA on the mound each pitching complete games.

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
The Lady Jacks enter the SLC Tournament as the No. 4 seed and with a 17-12 mark in league action. SFA is coming off a 4-1 victory over UTSA at home. Game three against the Roadrunners was cancelled.

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 has been the Mavericks number-one ace on the mound, posting a 13-13 mark with a 2.97 ERA, four shutouts and fanning 140.

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
Catcher-Chumchal is a two-time All-SLC selection. The junior leads the team in home runs with eight and in batting with a .333 average.

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.

FIVE MAVS EARN SLC ACCOLADES
With the Southland Conference Tournament just a few days away, five players on the UT Arlington squad earned All-Southland Conference honors the league announced Tuesday.

Juniors Samantha Chumchal and Heather Fortenberry were named to the first team while Fortenberry also earned the recognition of Utility Player of the Year.

Sophomore Rebecca Collom was selected to the third team and newcomer Erica LeFlore and Cara Hulme were named to the honorable mention team.
