GREENSBORO – The North Carolina A&T softball team will host its rival, N.C. Central in its final regular-season MEAC weekend series beginning on Saturday, May 3 with a doubleheader starting at 1 p.m. The Aggies will wrap-up the weekend on Sunday, May 4 at noon.

A&T (14-25, 6-6) will honor seniors Sabrina Edmonds, Detavia Kenan, Tranea Jones, Tiffany Macklin, Dominique Smith, Haley Snyder, Shelby Snyder, and Jax Kaye Woodard on Saturday after the 1 p.m. game.

The Aggies will be looking to send its senior class out on a high note as A&T is trying to snap an eight-game losing streak. Currently the Aggies are in fourth place in the MEAC southern division and will need to win at least one game this weekend to clinch a MEAC tournament berth heading into next week’s tournament in Ormond Beach, Fla.

Last season, A&T won two games over the Eagles (7-32, 3-8) in Durham as NCCU claimed the third game, 10-2.  The Eagles are coming off a split with Norfolk State, while the Aggies are seeking their first win since April 12.

Offensively, N.C. Central is led by siblings Emerie and London Germ. E. Germ heads the Eagles with a .345 batting average which includes 41 hits and 17 RBI. L. Germ is hitting .317 with 39 hits, 19 runs, and is 9-for-13 in stolen bases. De’onna Smith (.300) has hit a team-high five home runs as the Eagles are batting .230 as a team.

The Aggies’ offense has seen several standouts ranging from all classes and all parts of the lineup. Senior Sabrina Edmonds (.315) is the only Aggie currently batting over .300. Edmonds leads the team in RBI (24) and home runs (seven) while freshman Dasia Moore has tallied a team-high 35 hits and 10 doubles. Junior Zebresha Blakeney (29) and sophomore Alejandra Barcenas (26) are the only other Aggies who have recorded 25 or more hits this season.

A&T’s offense will go against a pitching staff with a 4.84 ERA behind ace pitcher London Booker (4.26) and Dominique Wilson (5.12). Booker has struck out 91 batters and leads NCCU in wins with five. Wilson (2-12) has tallied 64 strikeouts.

Sophomore Janika May (3.65), freshman Maiven McKnight (4.40), S. Snyder (4.85), and freshman Jaimie Jordon (6.12) make up the Aggies’ pitchers who have combined for a 4.29 ERA. May leads the Aggies in wins (seven) and strikeouts (50).
