Last season, the Tigers swept Virginia at McWhorter Stadium (then Clemson Softball Stadium) in Clemson's inaugural ACC series. Valerie Cagle, a native of Yorktown, Virginia, hit a walkoff home run with a 3-0 count in the opening game of the series, which the Tigers won, 8-7, on Feb. 28, 2020. This weekend's games, which includes a doubleheader on Saturday, are scheduled to stream on ACCNX. For the first time in program history, Clemson received its first top 25 ranking. The Tigers debuted at No. 25 in D1Softball.com's top-25 poll on March 1.
LAST TIME OUT
Clemson swept Elon last weekend at McWhorter Stadium to remain undefeated in non-conference action this season.
Against the Phoenix, Clemson did not surrender a single run all weekend to outscore Elon, 21-0. In the circle, Valerie Cagle and Regan Spencer were dominant to help Clemson hold the Phoenix scoreless last weekend. Cagle bookended the series after registering back-to-back complete-game performances on Saturday and Sunday. Spencer earned the win in game No. 2 after surrendering just one hit and retiring the last 13 batters faced.
