ē LAST CHANCE: Barring some kind of miraculous turn of events, the JSU softball team will play its final home games of the season this weekend against Austin Peay.

That means itís your last chance to see the most prolific player in the programís history at University Field.

Outfielder Danielle Pappano already is the schoolís all-time leader in home runs (52), RBIs (188), hits (270), doubles (60) and runs (194). By the time she completes her eligibility, sheíll be the all-time leader in six of the nine offensive categories for which the Gamecocks keep records and among the top 10 in all of them.

Pappano and catcher Melissa Norton, the teamís other senior, will be recognized prior to Sundayís 1 p.m. game.

The Gamecocks (25-17) enter the weekend third in the OVC standings, 4.5 games behind league-leader Tennessee Tech with nine games to play. They are only a half-game behind second-place Eastern Kentucky. The top two finishers draw first-round byes in the OVC Tournament.
