In the circle, Cade was nearly unhittable actually recording a no-hitter against LSU-Eunice and four wins total, all against ranked opponents. Cade now has a 0.81 ERA to start her sophomore campaign and then at the plate, Travis was crushing opposing pitchers to the tune of .571 batting average, three home runs in her last three games, and 11 RBI.

The freshman is by far and away the team leader with eight long balls en route to a perfect 14-0 start for the Lady Bulldogs.
