DENTON, Tx. — UAB will be facing Southern Miss in the quarterfinals of the softball championship today at 4:30. Southern Miss defeated UTEP last night 10-4. UAB will likely see USM pitcher Danielle Block. They’ve already seen her three times this season and have had success against her each time.

The Conference USA postseason softball awards were announced this week and UAB had a trio make the list. Caitlin Attfield, star shortstop and future pro, and Mary Warren, designated player who at one point had an on-base streak of 21 games, were both selected to the first team. Ashley Johnson, a catcher who has caught 18 runners stealing and picked off two runners, was selected to second team in the conference.

Congratulations ladies!

Good luck this evening, and Go Blazers!
