STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State split a pair of softball games this past Sunday at Charger Park in Huntsville, Ala., falling 4-2 to Alabama-Huntsville and defeating defending NJCAA Division I national champions Chattanooga State, 13-8. The split pushed the Maroon and White to 4-2 on the 2012 fall exhibition schedule.

In game one against UAH, the Bulldogs held a lead until the sixth inning before the Chargers took the lead for good and held on to win. The game marked the first-ever matchup between MSU Head Coach Vann Stuedeman and her sister Les, who is the second-winningest head coach in Division II history.

In game two, hometown hero Jessica Offutt helped the Bulldog bats bounce back with a 3-3 performance, which also included two walks, five stolen bases and two runs scored.

Stuedeman’s squad wraps up the fall season with a doubleheader at the MSU Softball Stadium this Sunday, Oct. 21, at 1 p.m. vs. Wallace-Hanceville. On Saturday before MSU football’s homecoming, the team will perform a pitching clinic in The Junction. Admission is free to both the clinic and the doubleheader.
