Schwirtlich Sisters Help HBU Take Series From Islanders

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - This weekend was a homecoming for softball sisters and Houston Baptist Huskies Lauren and Kirsten Schwirtlich, and they indeed made themselves at home in helping HBU to a series win over the Islanders.

The former Tuloso-Midway Cherokees had a combined five hits and five runs scored in a 9-3 Huskies' win over Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in the rubber game Sunday. The Islanders dropped to 6-17 and 1-2 in Southland Conference play while Houston Baptist improved to 7-6 and 2-1 in conference.

The Schwirtlich sisters were playing their first collegiate game back in Corpus Christi after both were reunited as teammates this season at HBU. Kirsten joined as a freshman out of T-M. Lauren also joined the Huskies this year after sitting out of softball in 2012 following her exit from Texas A&M's program for personal reasons. Plenty of T-M players, coaches and fans were in the stands at Chapman Field to watch the former Cherokee stars.

Watch the video clip above to see the highlights of Sunday's game and to hear from the Schwirtlich sisters.
