LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - SCAC Softball continues in full swing as Schreiner split a pair of games this past weekend to get the most wins in the conference this past weekend. Austin College continued to maintain its lead in the SCAC Standings. However, all of that can change in an instant as SCAC play begins this weekend!
