The Marshall University softball team is coming off a 10 game consecutive win streak after defeating Middle Tennessee State University Sunday 6-1.

“This is a huge accomplishment and gives us a lot of confidence going into our next games,” sophomore Rebecca Myslenski said. “We got 10 in a row focusing on one game at a time, and like coach Stanton said, ‘we need to win every game, every pitch from here on out.’”

The team is looking to continue the streak this weekend as they face Florida Atlantic University in a three-game series.

The team will play a double header starting 1 p.m. Saturday at The Dot Hicks Field in Huntington with the next game at 3 p.m.

“It’s a great advantage playing at home,” Myslenski said. “When our team gets rolling there’s no stopping us.”

The Herd currently has a record of 9-5 in conference and will play its next five games at home where its record is 6-2.

“Playing at home is a lot more fun than playing on the road because we get such a great crowd there to support us,” sophomore Jordan Dixon said.

The Herd will conclude the series against FAU at noon Sunday.
