MU softball wins series over WKU, hands Lady Toppers first conference loss

An eight-run inning on Saturday and a walk-off win on Sunday gave Marshall softball the series win over Western Kentucky at Dot Hicks Field.

Overall, the Herd is 25-13 and 8-4 in Conference USA, which puts them at second in the East Division. WKU is 27-8 and 10-2 in C-USA and in first place of the East Division.

Coming off of an injury that caused her to miss 30 games, sophomore outfielder Rachel Rousseau was the contributing player in both of these situations, hitting a grand slam in game one and the walk-off in game three.

In game one, a fourth inning homerun from sophomore first baseman Aly Harrell put the Herd on the board first.
