BOONE, N.C. – Appalachian State travels to Cookeville, Tenn. on Wednesday for a midweek non-conference doubleheader with Tennessee Tech starting at 3 p.m.



Appalachian State were able to take one of three games against first-place Georgia Southern in last weekends’ Southern Conference series.  The Mountaineers claimed their lone victory, 3-2, on Sunday on Senior Day and were led by senior Caitlin Wainright, who threw 4.2 scoreless innings to earn the win. Wainright ended the weekend with out giving up a run and only allowing five hits to the first-place Eagles.  The three runs came off a two-run home run from junior Meghan Smith and a solo homer from Allie Cashion.


Cashion leads the team in batting average (.396), runs (32), runs batted in (43), home runs (14), slugging percentage (.838) and on base percentage (.500).  Freshman Sarah Warnock isn’t to far behind Cashion with a .385 average at the plate, but leads the squad with 47 hits.  Warnock has led the team the last 15 games with a .420 batting average, 13 runs and 21 hits.




Tennessee Tech has been led by Holly Thomas’ strong pitching, as she has earned 14 of Tennessee Tech’s 20 wins and has recorded three shutouts, while also limiting opponents to a .203 batting average. At the plate, Kayla Floyd is hitting .375 in limited action at the plate, and Chanelle Spalding leads Tennessee Tech in hits (37) and run scored (19) in 44 games played.  The Golden Eagles square off with instate foes ETSU on Tuesday for a twinbill.



The Mountaineers will wrap-up the regular season with a trip to Birmingham, Ala for a SoCon series with Samford, before hosting the 2012 Southern Conference Softball Tournament on May 9-12.
