Softball squad goes 7-14 on road swing

Although the NIU women’s softball team started its 21-game Spring Break with a 6-14 mark, the Huskies ended the trip with a 3-0 victory over the No. 4 team in the Midwest Region—Southern Illinois.

Yesterday at the Texas A&M Aggie II Invitational, NIU utilized a two-hit performance from Tracie Meade (2-4) to blank the Salukis.

Earlier in the day, NIU dropped a 10-inning heart-breaking loss to Sam Houston State, 1-0. NIU’s Kristen Vandenhouten hurled a three-hit performance, but was outdone by her counterpart and three errors by the Huskies.
