"Anytime you win a conference game its good, but to get a sweep on the road is even better."

Troy State (37-15, 7-5 A-Sun) pulled out a 3-1 win in game one. Jenny Boyd’s single put the Lady Trojans on top in the fifth and Peggy Swift’s RBI single in the sixth capped the win for the Lady Trojans.

Cassie Wilkenson got the win for TSU, improving to 14-4 on the season.

She allowed one run on three hits while walking six and striking out six.

Christi Curran tied the school-record for saves, pitching a scoreless seventh for her fifth save of the year.

She tied Allison Linderman’s record which was set in 1999.

The Lady Trojans needed eight innings to claim a 3-0 win in game two.

Marrott’s double gave Troy State its first lead of the game and would come around to score on Erin Flater’s RBI single to give the Lady Trojans some insurance.

Freshman Ashley Floyd threw her fifth shutout of the year to improve her record to 11-4.

She allowed just three hits over eight innings while striking out three and walking five.

The Lady Trojans are back in action on Thursday as they travel to face in-state rival Birmingham-Southern.
