The Jefferson Davis Community College Lady Warhawk softball team picked up their fifth straight win Tuesday as they swept a non-conference doubleheader with Chattahoochee Valley.
JDCC won game one 6-4 and took game two 7-4 to improve to 15-30 overall.
“The team is really coming together,” JDCC head coach Misti Nims said. “They are fighting to the end and in both games, we had to come from behind to win. We have a huge week ahead including six conference games. We are currently in second but that can change depending on what the other teams around us are doing. I feel that we can accomplish our goal of qualifying for the tournament if we can keep composure and continue to fight.”
The Lady Warhawks will play at Faulkner State Thursday at 4 and 6 p.m. A home makeup with Faulkner is scheduled for Sunday at noon and 2 p.m.
