Get the picture: the Lady Gamecocks are leading in state rival UAB in the top of the 7th 2 to 0 when trouble strikes. After a masterful performance, starting pitcher Ashley Eliason gives up a run and UAB has runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs. At that point, Coach McGinnis calls on true freshman Hillary Phillips to close out the game. Hillary immediately proceeds to strike out three straight batters, making them all look feeble in the process.

This was a remarkable performance by a true freshman. The softball team is heating up and the tandem of Eliason and Phillips should take them a long way.
