The single season r-b-i record for the Winona State
softball program was 58 entering the year.
That record wasn't shattered just once....but twice
this season...by Jenny Nelson who has 70 and Morgan
Lintz who has 69.
Warriors hoping they have a few more games to add
onto those impressive stats....
...opening up play in the double-elimination N-C-A-A
tournament regional they are hosting.
First up is Southern Arkansas.
And top of the first they waste little time taking
charge of the game.
Shelby Miller leading off the game with a home run.
And the very next batter Maddie Dow doing the same.
Southern Arkansas out to a two-nothing lead.
Winona State gets their offense going in the second
They rattle off four straight singles....Jessica Kullmann
brings home their first run of the game.
Then Lexi Perez makes it five straight base hits.
Another runs scores....game is tied at two-two.
That score stays the same until the bottom of the
Jenny Nelson with r-b-i number 71 on the season....with
her 18th home run of the season...that homer tying
the school's single season record.
That would be the game-winner.
Winona State winning three-to-two.
The Viterbo baseball team is enterting territory like
no other Viterbo team before them.
For the first time ever .
the V-Hawks won the M-C-C tournament.
Propelling them to their first N-A-I-A national tournament
Tonight was the announcing of the bracket...the team
getting together to watch.
Five-seed Viterbo will be heading to play in Kansas
on Monday where they will face 4 seed Mayville State
of North Dakota.
And although this team has already achieved so much
confidence remains high entering their pool.
You know we're not satisfied .
you know and I don't think this group is satisfied
especially seeing the bracket that we drew.
Because the second seed in that bracket is a team
we already beat this year.
So I think thats going to give them some confidence
if they didn't already have enough confidence
Viroqua can put a tight grasp on the Coulee lead as
they face Westby for the second straight day.
The game was scorless until the bottom of the 5th

Bottom of the sixth .
Zach Trautsch gets this one to fall and brings Tanner
Westby trailing by 2.
Mitch Stalsberg would add to their lead as he rips
