In the Lady Hurricanes’ first game of the season against Limestone, they defeated the Lady Saints 3-1, but lost to Embry-Riddle University 8-2 in their second game.

In the win over Limestone, Zoe Willis turned in a stellar performance in pitching and hitting for GSW. The junior from Pine Mountain, GA pitched a complete game, allowing one run and striking out six batters in seven innings. Willis also recorded two hits in three at bats and drove in an RBI on a Sacrifice fly in the fifth inning to close out the game for the Lady Hurricanes.
