Spartanburg, S.C. – The USC Upstate softball team will carry its six-game winning streak into action this weekend when it plays host to A-Sun rival Lipscomb Saturday and Sunday at Cyrill Stadium. The series could go a long way in determining seeding for the upcoming A-Sun Tournament in May.

Upstate claimed a thrilling 4-3 victory at No. 11 Georgia Wednesday night in Athens and looks to carry the momentum of that win into action against a Lipscomb squad that is the only A-Sun school that has a winning record all-time against the Spartans. The Bisons own a 14-10 lead in the all-time series, though Upstate has won six consecutive games in the series, including three in the last two A-Sun Tournaments.
