Tennessee scores its seven runs in the first four innings to eliminate the ACC champion Wolfpack and win the NCAA Knoxville Regional.
Junior Scout Albertson and freshman Hanna Sommer both have two home runs and seniors Bethaney Wells and Caitlin Dent and junior Kirsty Grant each add one apiece. The Pack's ACC-leading 71 homers this season surpasses the previous school record of 66.
Junior first baseman Leah Jones drives in a career-high five runs with a three-run homer and a two-run single and sophomore shortstop Renada Davis extends her school-record and ACC-leading home run total to 21. Junior Scout Albertson had three RBIs in the Wolfpack's final midweek game of the regular season.
Sophomore Sara Lippard's bases-loaded double gives the Wolfpack the lead for good in the fourth in the second game of a doubleheader at the ECU Softball Stadium. State travels to Atlanta for a three-game series against Georgia Tech on Friday and Saturday.
Sophomore shortstop Renada Davis, who now leads the ACC with 12 home runs, hits a two-run shot and a solo shot for her second two-homer game of the season. The Pack (11-13-1) travels to Blacksburg, Va., next weekend to face Virginia Tech in its first ACC road series of the season.
