UNCG Softball got their season off to a roaring start. In the Jacksonville University Invitational last weekend, they defeated the Big 12’s Kansas, a top 40 team. And a few hours later, they defeated the ACC’s NC State, ranked No. 23 nationally. On Sunday, they came from behind to defeat Kansas again.
The win over the Jayhawks marks Spartan Softball’s first-ever win over Kansas, and the first win over a Big 12 opponent.
The win over NC State was the first win over an ACC opponent since knocking off Virginia on Mar. 3, 2013. It was also the first victory over the Wolfpack since Mar. 25, 2010 and the first win over a Top 25 team since knocking off then No. 23 Florida State on Feb. 11th, 2011.
They are now 4-1, having also defeated Coastal Carolina and lost to Jacksonville.
Softball is a great spectator sport here at UNCG. You’re on top of the action, wherever you sit. There’s no admission charge. Come cheer on the team.
Their home opener, against the Tar Heels, is one week away: Wed, Feb 24, 4 p.m.
