The softball team dropped both games in a post-season double header against University of Central Oklahoma on April 21.

UCO made their first runs early in game one, putting four points on the board in the first inning.

“That’s hard to come back from, especially since we’ve played for the past few days,” said biology senior Kelley Schaefer. “It was a rough weekend.”

The Bronchos rallied more points in the third inning to bring the score to 12-0 in the fourth inning.

The Mustangs would see their first point in the fourth inning when Schaefer hit the ball to left field.

Schaefer would see another chance to bring two players home with Katlyn Holmes in the bottom of the fifth inning, bringing the final score to 18-5 for game one.

In the second game, MSU was able to fight back, limiting UCO to making no more than two runs in any inning.

Schaefer hit the ball down the line to bring Haley Howerton to home base and even the score in the top of the first, 1-1.

MSU held the game at 4-1 until the seventh inning when UCO would then claim the last point to end the game, 5-1.

“They can hit,” Schaefer said of the Bronchos’ batting game.

Rest and ice is ideal for the team, Schaefer said, as they look ahead to face Texas A&M Kingsville as their last opponent before the Lone Star Conference Championship tournament May 1.

“We’re a week from being done so we’re beaten up and tired,” she said. “We’ve got a conference tournament the next weekend and hopefully regionals the next.”

The team will play Texas A&M Kingsville April 24-25 at Hubert field in Kingsville.
