FAMU softball team clinches MEAC Southern Division title

Alexis Day led FAMU with four hits and three RBIs in Sunday’s win over B-CU
The Florida A&M University (FAMU) softball team used a 15-hit attack to overhaul host Bethune-Cookman, 13-7, and capture the 2017 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Southern Division championship at Sunnyland Field.

Sunday's win gave the Lady Rattlers (18-27-1, 13-2 MEAC) their first Southern Division crown since 2009, while foiling archrival Bethune-Cookman's bid for their first division title since 2014.

FAMU pitcher Kenya Pereira (8-9) tossed two scoreless innings in the sixth and seventh. She finished the day with seven strikeouts, two walks, and scattered 13 hits while allowing seven runs in seven complete innings.

Heading the FAMU offense was Alexis Day, who finished with four hits and a pair of RBI, Snider who had three hits and two RBI, along with the trio of Toni Anderson, Whitney Farris and Pereira, who each had two hits.
