The Brenau University softball team (30-11-1, 21-8-1 SSAC) lost both games in a doubleheader against Shorter College 2-0 and 8-0 on Friday. The losses drop the Tigers out of second place in the Southern States Athletic Conference and into the fourth position with a critical doubleheader today at Brewton-Parker College, as three teams jockey for the No. 2 seed going into the conference tournament next weekend.
In the first game, freshman Tiffany Schandera picked up the only hit for Brenau. Anna Maness picked up the loss for the Tigers despite a strong effort on the mound herself.
In game two, Ellen Black suffered her first loss of the season as the Tigers were shut out twice for the first time all season.
Schandera picked up two more hits, and Morgan Smith, Sarah Applegarth and Brooke Bryant each reached base once for the Golden Tigers.
