Nothing is getting in the way of the The Lady Lions

The Piedmont women’s softball team is a force to be reckoned with season as they currently hold a nine-game win streak.

The Lady Lions have had an impressive season so far with a 15-8 record. The team most recently faced Wesleyan College in a double header hosted at the Lion’s home field. The first game was held Wed. March 30 at 1pm and the Lions walked away with a 7-2 victory, then turned around to defeat the Wesleyan Wolves once again with a score of 3-0.

This past week, Rebekah Stegmayer, senior and outfielder, received the recognition of player of the week from USA South.  Stegmayer stood at the top of the stat sheets this past week as she held a total of 31 hits from the games played against Wesleyan. These are the kind of stats the Lions will be looking for as they enter conference play.

“This season I feel like we have honestly done nothing but grow together,” says senior and last season’s USA South pitcher of the year, Martina Maloch. “Not only have we gotten better physically but our relationships as teammates have continued to grow as well. We have learned to play for each other and love each other. As we enter conference, I feel this is more important now than ever, so we continue to strive to play for the person next to us. With as much as we have grown together, I have high expectations for this team. The chemistry and love we have for each other is unbeatable and I feel like we can go as far as we want if we continue to play for one another.”

Head Coach Terry Martin, in his 24th season, will be looking to take his team back to the top as the Lady Lions look to hold their title as conference regular season champions. The team will also be looking to take the title yet again for the five-conference tournament and hopefully make another NCAA Regional appearance.

The Lions will step back out on the mound Tues. April 5 at 1 p.m. at the Walker Athletic Complex as they face Maryville College.
