EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE softball Head Coach Sandy Montgomery said she is looking for performance at game time as the Cougars complete their fall schedule Sunday at Cougar Field.

SIUE, which is 4-0 in fall games with three consecutive shutouts, face off against Lake Land College in a 1 p.m. doubleheader.

"From an offensive standpoint, we'd like to have more hitting production than we have had," said Montgomery.  "I think the kids have had a good week of practice so we hope to see that."

The Cougars defeated Jefferson College 2-0 and 5-0 last weekend.

"We had a 65 to 70 percent quality pitch rate, which is about the area that we are looking for," said Montgomery. "If that can be improved, that would be outstanding but would be tough to do."

SIUE also used very different lineups in the Jefferson doubleheader, a sign that the Cougars have the necessary depth heading into the spring.

"It's huge that we have a deep team," said Montgomery. " I think we have a good complement of speed and power. We have a lot of good combinations to throw out there depending on who we are playing and what the scouting report is for the spring."
