The Jaguars are heading back to Dahlonega for the NCAA Regionals for the second time in the past three years. They are making their third straight trip to the NCAA’s, all under the direction of Melissa Mullins. After losing four out of their last five games, including a loss in their opening game of the 2012 PBC Tournament, Augusta State has hopes of getting over the regional hump and getting to Super Regionals.
They have won one game in each of their past three regional appearances, going 3-6 in those games. The bats have come and gone for the Jags this year, putting up big numbers and following those with one to no runs. They have only scored 13 runs in their past 11 games, but also went on a 17-game winning streak earlier this season.
Augusta State is not short on talent however with seniors Kacee Camp and Jessica Thornton controlling the left side of the infield, while combining to hit .359 to lead the team. Both players earned PBC First-Team honors, and rightfully so, as they led the Jaguars to a third-place conference finish and the fourth overall seed in the Southeast Region.
They will be out for revenge this coming weekend, as they were swept by North Georgia earlier this year by a combined 10-0 in the two games. ASU did take two out of three from Columbus this year, and will look to hold the edge if they are going to advance in the regionals.
The 2012 Augusta State squad will look to get past the NCAA Regional round and make a push at the NCAA Super Regionals, something the past three teams could not accomplish. If Camp and Thornton can bear the load as they have done all season and All-Conference pitcher Emily Headrick has her best stuff, the Jaguars will be a tough out in Dahlonega.
