JOHNSON CITY, Tenn.

Meanwhile, Presbyterian has won four of its last six games and enters Saturday's doubleheader with a record of 8-5. The Blue Hose are led by junior third baseman Taylor Staten and senior first baseman Rachel Parker. Both players are hitting .400, while Staten leads the team with 14 hits.
