This is pretty big and thought it deserved it's own post. The softball team took the first game of the three game series on Friday night with a 2-0 win, and then took the second game yesterday afternoon, 5-4 (official site) behind a Cydney Allen 3-run home run and another win for Cara Custer. Missouri ended up salvaging series with a win in the third game, 1-4 (official site). Custer took the loss, but I'll take a split with a particular pitcher on a Saturday with the No. 9 team in the country any series. Here's head coach Shanon Hays, a bit disappointed, but overall very happy to take the series:
"No question we would have liked to get the sweep today," Tech head coach Shanon Hays said. "Anytime you go on the road in our conference and take two, that's a good weekend and I was proud of how our team competed against a very good Missouri team. We had a chance to win that last one but left too many runners on late and that doesn't win you many ballgames."
