20LSU BB_ALL FOR ALEX FRONT.jpg

The SEC softball community will be united on March 20th when all 13 teams participate in the "All for Alex" campaign to honor the legacy of Mississippi State's Alex Wilcox.

Wilcox was a member of the 2019 Mississippi State softball team who inspired the nation with her courageous fight against ovarian cancer. That fight ultimately took her life in the summer of 2018.

The 13 SEC schools will join together to wear teal or teal accents on Saturday, March 20th as the entire league recognizes her impact on the softball community nationwide and in the fight against ovarian cancer.
