Be sure to check out his site for all the latest WAC softball news and notes.

The opening week of the 2009 softball season for Western Athletic Conference teams was one for the record books as there were a number of 'firsts' in the league.

New Mexico State got off to the fastest start in school history, roaring out of the gate to a 6-0 record thanks to some big bats and quality pitching. Boise State captured the first two wins in program history, going 2-2 at the Cathedral City Kickoff against good competition. Nevada defeated then-9th ranked Northwestern at a tournament in Phoenix, while Hawai'i came from behind to open its season with a win over then-10th ranked Oklahoma. And Fresno State had two different pitchers throw complete-game shutouts, highlighting an overall strong week for the league.  Continue Reading This Post >>

Aggie Softball Head To Albuquerque To Take On Lobos

Written by: NMSU Athletic Dept.

LAS CRUCES, N.M. - After beating Cal State Bakersfield in two-out-of three games last weekend, the New Mexico State softball team has a quick turn-around as they travel up I-25, to Albuquerque, N.M., Tuesday, April 22, to go head-to-head with rival UNM in the second meeting of the season. The first pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.

As of the current date, UNM holds a 8.5 point lead over NMSU in the Rio Grande Rivalry Competition and even though UNM has a solid grasp on the rivalry competition for this year, beating the Lobos would surely help the Aggies’ drive into reclaiming it for the remainder of the spring season and into the fall.

This is the 127th meeting between these two softball programs and the Lobos currently have a 26 game advantage over the Aggies. Last season, the Aggies fell in three of the four matches against the Lobos, however did win the final game of the season, 3-1.  Continue Reading This Post >>
