ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Friday's VSU softball doubleheader is the start of a busy weekend for Lady Rams coach Robert Skinner.

Lady Rams head coach Robert Skinner said. "You always want to beat Fort Valley. That is the one thing Albany State alum live for. That is the other thing. Then there is our position in the conference. We want to stay on top. We look at all of those things.


The Peach Ball Classic starts with the women's game at 6:00 p.m. Saturday at the HPER Gym.

Skinner's ASU women's basketball hosts Fort Valley State on Saturday.

The winner of the game takes over sole possession of first place in the SIAC standings.

Coach Skinner says the Fort Valley game is big but the Lady Rams still have to win games after the Lady Wildcats to claim the SIAC regular season title.

Regardless of standings, the coach says it is always important to beat your biggest rival.
