Dolphins open up A-Sun play at home
The JU softball team is set to open up Atlantic Sun play this weekend as they host Lipscomb in a three game series starting Saturday.
The Dolphins (14-7), who finished with a 10-8 record in
conference play last season, will look to start off
JU took two out of the three games the two teams played last year with the last meeting taking place in the conference tournament in which the Dolphins prevailed 2-1.
The Dolphins are coming off of a pair of loses to Georgia Southern on Wednesday in which JU was outscored 9-5 and 5-3.
In the two losses, catcher Sarah Simon and infielder Ashley Simon combined to go 5-12 with three home runs and seven RBI.
Lipscomb enters the weekend on a three game losing streak with their last loss coming against IPFW on March 3.
In the 5-1 loss, the Bisons were held to just three hits including 16 strikeouts.
This weekend’s action starts with a double header on Saturday at the JU Softball Complex scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. The two teams will return Sunday for a single game slated for 1 p.m.
