LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - Weather played a factor in week two of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference softball action with several games cancelled due to cold temperatures however four teams were in action including Centenary who opened its 2019 season.

Southwestern (4-0, 0-0) is off to its first 4-0 start since the 2010 season after a doubleheader sweep of McMurry on Saturday. Senior Celeste Silvas batted .200 at the plate, scored three runs, walked twice and stole one base to lead the Pirates. In the circle, junior Lindsey Longuet picked up the win in game one, going five innings, scattering three hits and allowing just one earned run while striking out one batter.

Trinity (3-3, 0-0) posted a 3-1 record last week, splitting a Friday twin bill with McMurry before sweeping Hardin-Simmons on Saturday. Brianna Pena finished with three hits in three of the four games, going 10-16 (.556) overall and cracking a double in each game. She also scored a team-best six runs and drove in two more over the weekend. Allie Holbrook saw action in all four games last weekend in the circle for the Tigers, posting a record of 3-1 with an ERA of 1.57, allowing just three earned runs in 13.1 innings of work and striking out nine batters.

Schreiner (2-6, 0-0) has now dropped six-straight after opening the season 2-0 most recently falling in doubleheaders this past weekend against Louisiana College and LeTourneau.

Centenary (0-3, 0-0) opened its 2019 campaign by losing its first three contests, falling to East Texas Baptist before being swept in a doubleheader over the weekend by Millsaps.

SCAC softball continues this week with non-conference doubleheaders scheduled for Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
