BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham-Southern softball team got two much needed wins to kickoff a tough road trip against three ranked teams in three days. The Panthers (14-12) swept No. 17 Louisiana College 5-3 and 7-5 in their doubleheader Monday. This marked their first win against a ranked opponent this season.
Haley Crumpton (Alabaster, Ala./Thompson HS) pitched 7.2 shutout innings on the day, striking out six and giving up only five hits to the 33 batters she faced.
The Panthers continue their road trip to Texas. They take on No. 6 East Texas Baptist on Tuesday March 28 in a doubleheader, before heading to face No. 2 Texas-Tyler on Wednesday, March 29 in a single game.
