The TAMUK softball team ended their season losing a heartbreaking three-game series with the Augustana Vikings. They are the National Runner-Ups for NCAA Division II Softball.

Nonetheless, it was a remarkable season for the Javelinas. They managed to win 52 of their 62 games in their best season in program history.

“Great series,” coach  Craig Nicholson  said in a press release. “I’m sure everyone was entertained. Like I told the girls [Augustana] got some breaks, especially in the second game. We jumped out 4-0 and they kept fighting. We stopped scoring.”

“But it’s not really about this game. It’s about what this team has accomplished this season. We changed the culture and had a season that nobody expected and [ Victoria Schoonard-Saborio  and  Roxy Chapa ] are a huge reason why that happened.”

The Javelinas took a W in the first game of the series with Augustana, but unfortunately lost the next two games with the same score of 6 – 4.
