The New Mexico State softball team won the first conference title in program history completing a sweep of the Boise State Broncos winning game one 16-3 and rallying to win game two 7-6.
After falling behind 2-0 in the top half of the second inning, the Aggies answered with three runs in the bottom of the frame to take a 3-2 lead.

The Aggies would jump out to a quick 3-0 lead in the first inning but would see their lead turn into a 4-3 deficit after three innings. Boise State would add to the lead going up 5-3 but the Aggies would score a single run in the bottom of the fourth to cut the lead to 5-4 and then behind a three run fifth inning the Aggies would forge ahead 7-5. Boise State would score once in the top of the sixth and the Aggies would work around a leadoff single in the seventh to hold on for a 7-6 victory and the outright regular season title.
