Baylor Softball to the WCWS

Both the Baylor softball and baseball teams have seen immense success in their postseason play. The softball team earned a No. 15 seed in the Waco regional tournament as they faced Kent St and No. 12 James Madison in preparation for the Women’s College World Series. The Lady Bears took down Kent St., 1-0, at Getterman Stadium on May 19 before dominating JMU on May 20 and 21, notching 4-2 and 1-0 victories, respectively. They advanced to the NCAA Super Regionals where they faced No. 5 Arizona in Tucson. Although they lost the first game after the Wildcats earned a run at the bottom of the seventh inning, they powered back, winning the next two games with scores in the seventh to launch them toward the WCWS. They will face No. 6 Oklahoma in Oklahoma City on June 1 at 8:30 p.m. (CT).
