Senior Day couldn’t have gone much better for UNCG Softball Sunday. The Blue & Gold earned a 7-2 victory over the ETSU Bucs to win a share of the Southern Conference regular season championship and the No. 1 seed in the SoCon tournament.
The championship is the first for UNCG Softball since joining the SoCon in 1998 and the first conference regular season title for the Spartans since winning the Big South in 1996.
“We have been solid throughout conference play,” said Head Coach Janelle Breneman. “We set out for a SoCon championship and it takes sharpness every weekend. I felt like we did that winning every conference series but one. Coming in we obviously knew this series was going to be big but it was nice that we got to dictate our future and win the No. 1 seed in the tournament. That’s huge.”
The team now turns its attention to the SoCon Tournament later this week in Chattanooga, Tenn.
