For two weekends in a row the Jacksonville State University Gamecocks have come home victorious.
The first weekend at the Mercer Invitational, they came home with three wins and two losses. This past weekend, the Gamecocks traveled to Montgomery where they again returned home victorious with three wins and one loss under their belt.
This weekend was another great weekend for the Gamecocks. In their game on Friday, Anna Chislom’s two-run homer put the Gamecocks on top of UNA in an extra-inning thriller. This also moved pitcher Faith Sims to three wins on the season.
Saturday the Gamecocks split in beating Alabama A&M and falling to Western Carolina. Then on Sunday Taylor Beshears went 2-3, with one of those being a single run home-run and the other hit a double that drove in three runs. Sunday also lifted Faith Sims to four wins in the circle.
At this point in the season, the Gamecocks are 6-3 overall. This upcoming weekend they look to host a double header on Saturday followed by a single game on Sunday, all three against Southern Mississippi.
The Gamecocks are coming home for their first home series of the season. However, this home opener will be unconventional with University Field not being complete. The team will host their home games at Choccolocco Park in Oxford until the field is ready.
