1. Benedict Ties NCAA Record as Eagles Complete Holiday Inn Sweep

[“I thought the leadoff home run was big because they had just cut it to two, and anytime you can get the leadoff runner on it helps the confidence and gets momentum back on your side,” said Benedict. “I saw it was a cutter and just tried to make good contact.”]


2. Softball Falls to College of Charleston in the Rubber Game of the Series

[The Georgia Southern softball team (8-12, 1-2) dropped the rubber game of the series 4-0 to the College of Charleston Sunday.]


3. Unlikely suspects gain huge ground

[Georgia Southern: The Eagles have a tough road ahead with two-straight road series at UNC Greensboro and Appalachian State, but currently have much confidence after another successful weekend that ended with an overall record of 11-1. The Eagles beat Winthrop in mid-week action and also defeated Indiana and LeMoyne in the Eagle Invitational. The most important win of the week, though, came Sunday afternoon in a 14-4 triumph over East Carolina. GSU certainly has more to prove, but is a mid-major to watch this season.]


4. Veterans taste sweetness of victory

[Finishing a distant second was Richard Peek and Mason Craver from Auburn University, bringing in 19.83 pounds over the two days of competition. Georgia Southern University's Seth Cannon and David Mesplay landed in third place after catching 18 pounds.]
