| No Comments | No TrackBacks

            After beating No. 6 Texas in the first round of the NCAA tournament and then topping Houston 13-9 Saturday, Northwestern's softball team moves on to the regional finals Sunday in Austin, Texas. It is the fifth regional championship appearance for NU in the last eight years.

            The Wildcats' 17 base hits tied a single-game school record that was last accomplished on March 3, 2007 against Stanford.

            Mari Majam led the Wildcats and went 4-for-5 with three runs. Marisa Bast had three hits and four RBIs to reach 68 for the year, two shy of the school record, and Adrienne Monka drove in four runs which gave her 198 for her career.



            Amy Letourneau (13-9) earned the win in relief, allowing four unearned runs in 5.2 innings of work. She gave up three hits and seven walks with two strikeouts.
