JACKSONVILLE – Jacksonville State’s softball team did Friday what it’s done so often in recent years – sweep two games from an Ohio Valley Conference opponent.

For the Gamecocks, however, beating Belmont 9-1 and 4-3 carried more meaning that a couple of ordinary softball victories.

After an EF-3 tornado ripped through Jacksonville State and the surrounding community March 19, nothing has been ordinary for the school or its softball team. The location of Friday’s games served as a reminder, as Oxford’s Choccolocco Park served as the host. Sports information director Josh Underwood, who does public address for JSU softball, announced the Gamecocks’ appreciation twice to Oxford for use of the field.
