Hornets crush Northern Colorado today and sweep the Bears to start off Big Sky play 3-0.

the first year Montana softball team comes to town next weekend and the Hornets will likely roll over the new Griz team.

Nice to see a huge crowd out today against Cal.

Sac State fans do seem to come out big time when the Hornets take on big time schools..

Softball starts 6-0 in BSC play and completed the sweep against the hapless griz today via the mercy rule in a 9-1 win. :lol:

Hornets beats UC Davis 5-4.

Sac State completes a Causeway sweep of the rival Aggies today in softball and baseball.

Best of luck to the Hornets on the dreaded trip to the frozen tundra of North Dakota this weekend. Fingers crossed that all 3 games get played as it is very important that games at UND count. If any of the games are cancelled due to snow and cold they are often not made up.

As noted by JP, a walkoff triple from senior OF Alexa Chattleton (Rancho Santa Margarita-Trabuco Hills HS) plated senior OF Nicole Clark (Folsom HS) all the way from first base to salt this one away. The winning run was Sac's first lead of the game. Junior reliever Kaitlyn Yerby (Modesto-Enochs HS/College of Charleston) picked up the win with two effective innings, including a 14-pitch seventh, to improve to 2-0.

The Hornets improved to 18-19, 7-2 Big Sky, while Davis fell to 13-20, 1-5 Big West. The Hornets are tied for first. This win prevented a Davis sweep of the season series.

I'm surprised the Sioux didn't follow the example of the Cubs and claim "weather problems" in cancelling a couple of those games.

Hornets fall to a very bad UOP team tonight 5-0

Time for Sac State to step it up this weekend and take charge of the Big Sky standings against ISU

Our softball team has been right there at the top but has not sealed the deal time after time to do what is needed to take charge of the Big Sky.

This weekend against first place ISU and next weekend against 2nd place WSU , both at home is perfect for Sac State to bring home a Big Sky title.

The Hornets come in 2nd place in softball year after year.

Time for the coaching staff to step it up and bring a title home.

2nd place is getting very old with a program that should be on top.

The first place Hornets are defeated in all three games against the other first place ISU team in really bad showings att home. A chance to take control of the Big Sky softball race has been lost. On to Weber State next week at home and PSU on the road before the Big Sky tourney which the Hornets will likely make , but on the road again. Hope our program can eventually turn things around.

Hornets win 2 of three over Weber State and sit alone in 2nd place in the Big Sky standing s with 3 games remaining at PSU. Looking good for the Hornets to make the Big Sky tourney which will likely be held at ISU.

Hornets go on the road to PSU and sweep the Vikings going into the Big Sky tourney. Time again to pack bags and head to Idaho State to play for the Big Sky tourney title at the tiny ISU field Always a bummer to see Sac State not host as the school with the best softball facilities in the Big Sky. But all good. Go Hornets.

The softball team beats up on Idaho State 10-6 in the conference tournament to advance to the finals against BBQ U. This sets up a revenge rematch in the finals after enduring the loser's bracket of the double-elimination tournament over three days. What a grueling schedule. ISU was set up to have the easy way with a THU game and only one guaranteed FRI game, but they blew it....

Weber blasted the Hornets 13-1 today to win the conference title. Caitlin Brooks was tagged with the L after being yanked in the second inning. She DID make the All-Tournament Team. Oddly, NOBODY from SUU made the All-Tournament Team. We got four, WSU got 4, and ISU got three, plus WSU's MVP.

Congrats to the Hornets for fighting back yesterday to eliminate SUU and ISU. Another winning season for the hornets 28-26.On to next year and so hope the Hornets can figure out a way to get out of second place finishes and get the right to host the Big Sky tourney. 38 wins for Weber State. Good luck to them in the NCAA and hope they get past the first round which is so uncommon for a Big Sky team. But hope they do.
