Coming back to the win column…

“It feels good to get a win there. Emiley (Kennedy) came out and just found a way to throw strikes and get out and I think defensively we played really well. We made plays and Texas State made mistakes we took advantage of those opportunities and got some big hits I thought Koko (Wooley) was especially good tonight in first place and his speed really helped us win the game then Mayce (Allen) getting up and getting the big home run gave us some confidence there. Overall I think it was a well played game by our team and it will give us some confidence. momentum for our Auburn series.

On Emily Kennedy’s confidence in the circle…

“I’m really pleased with the way she handles her opportunities. I thought tonight she was having a little trouble getting behind the batters, but she never got into too much trouble and defensively we made plays when we needed to. I think her composure on the mound is exceptional, and as a freshman, she keeps her cool and really, she’s someone to rely on, and she gives us a chance to win some matches. His composure is something that really impresses me.

We get along on and off the pitch, so I feel like that chemistry will help us a lot and we’ll we support each other, and that we know what the other can and can’t get, and if they can’t, have a backup I feel like our chemistry will help a lot moving forward .
