UAB Softball Tops UCF

Posted: Updated:

ORLANDO, Fla.—The UAB softball team completed the series sweep on Sunday as it topped UCF, 8-2, at the UCF Softball Complex.

Sophomore second baseman Heather Pearson hit a home run while junior designated hitter Kristen McGrath had two bombs over center field in the win.

"Winning on Sunday is something we take a lot of pride in," head coach Marla Townsend said. "It's neat when I look at the stats and I see that we have five RBI from our three and four hitters, who didn't account for as many of the runs we scored yesterday. It's been a lot of different people stepping up and a total team effort. I may say that a lot, but I've never meant it more than I do right now."

With the win, which was televised by Fox Sports, the Blazers improve to 11-5 overall and a perfect 3-0 in Conference USA action. The Knights fall to 14-12 on the year and 0-3 in conference.
