Tech Softball Returns To Cookeville This Weekend

As the race to secure a spot in the OVC Tournament heats up, so has the Tennessee Tech softball team. Winners of five of their last six games, the Golden Eagles will host a three-game series this weekend against Eastern Kentucky in the penultimate week of the regular season. Tech (23-27) will look to improve upon its 9-11 conference record and guarantee itself a spot in the six-team OVC Tournament field, while Eastern Kentucky (13-33) will seek to get itself back in the race. The Lady Colonels are in eighth place in the OVC with a 7-13 record during conference action. The two teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader at the Tech Softball Field on Saturday beginning at 1 p.m. before playing a single game on Sunday at the same start time.
