Cal U Ride Ends with Semifinals Loss to Dixie State
The California University softball team avoided elimination 10 times in this post season. Unfortunately, the streak ended there as the Vulcans failed to hold an early 6-3 lead, losing to Dixie State, 10-6, Sunday evening in the Division Final at the NCAA D-II softball national championships. Leading 6-3 in the third, Cal U had the bases loaded and one out but couldn't get another run across. The Vulcans got just two more baserunners the rest of the way. The season ends 43-13 and all 11 Cal U players that played the last two rounds are underclassmen. D-II Softball Home

Wild Things Snap Streak, Win On Road
The Washington Wild Things snap a five-game losing streak on Sunday afternoon with a 3-2 win over the Normal CornBelters.  Washington broke a 2-2 tie in the sixth inning on an RBI single by Danny Poma and held on the rest of the way for the win.  Normal had two runners aboard in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and reliever Matt Purnell entered the game and struck Pat McKenna to preserve the victory. Purnell earned the save and starter Tim Flight (1-0) picked up the victory with six strong innings of work.  Flight struck out seven and walked three.
