Beat HBU today 1-0 to take the series 2 games to 1 and improved to 34-10; 25-2; RPI: #94

Tourney Time!

May 11 (Tues.) in Hammond.

HBU will be tough in the tournament. Their pitcher is VERY good. She's just about an equal to Wilbur.

  • 8-10 2.41 ERA
  • 29-4 0.82 ERA

One of these is most definitely not about equal to the other.

She most definitely was the last two days.

The tournament bracket the SLC now has posted has some differences from what had been posted.

We play our first game at 1:30 on Wednesday. SLU, ACU, and NSU are on our side of the bracket, with SLU and ACU playing a single elimination game on Tuesday. After that, it is double elimination. Games will be streamed on ESPN+ until the championship game.

Small senior class. Novegil is a four year starter, mostly at second base.

    SLC accolades. They got this one right.

  • Nicole Dickson - coach of the year.
  • Shay Govan - first team 1B, and hitter of the year.
  • Kassidy Wilbur - first team P, player of the year, and pitcher of the year.
  • Mackenzie Bennett - first team DP
  • Bryana Novegil - first team 2B
  • Gabby Garcia - second team UT
  • Camryn Middlebrook - second team SS
  • Alex Hedspeth - third team 3B

Novegil is the only senior on the list. All-conference infield.

Wow! Incredible haul by a great team. I really hope they have something right turn out for them in the postseason.

The SLC tournament was scheduled to start Tuesday at SLU with two first round, single elimination games followed by two games which would start double elimination. Four games scheduled for Wednesday, with SFA playing their first game at 1:30. The games scheduled for 11:00 AM and 1:30 PM on Tuesday were delayed to 6:00 and 8:30 due to rain. Later, they were delayed to 11:00 and 1:30 on Wednesday due to unplayable field conditions. The rain had stopped about 1:00 PM on Tuesday.

Wednesday morning the SLC announced that due to weather and "inclement field conditions" the two first round games were being delayed to 5:00 and 7:30 and would be played at St. Thomas Aquinas High school, which is about five minutes from SLU. No ESPN+ coverage from the high school. The balance of the schedule is TBD.

Shocking I know, but the SLC had no back up plan until Wednesday morning. Rain has been in the forecast for several days. There is some discussion that there may be games played at Live Oak High School which is about 50 miles from Hammond.

Probably appropriate to point out that SLU has a turf field. So, high school fields are playable, but SLU is not. July 1, cannot get here soon enough.

Sam eliminates HBU 4-3 with an unearned run in the top of the 7th.
SLU eliminates ACU 4-3 with a run in the bottom of the 8th.

SFA scheduled to play the winner of SLU and NSU in the final game of the day at 6:30 on Thursday

No rain today. SLU field does have a turf infield, but has a grass outfield that is being currently described as mush, so all games probably are at the high school field.

I'd love to see us go to an all weather field if we build new facilities, especially since any month of the year in Nac has the potential to be monsoon season.

McNeese - 3
Sam - 1

NSU - 7
SLU - 4

McNeese - 6
UCA - 5

SFA - 4
NSU - 1

SFA vs McNeese on Friday at 4:00. The winner is the remaining undefeated team, and has the inside track to the championship.

Down 0-2 to McNeese in the top of the 6th.

In a bit of trouble against Central Arkansas.... softball season might end earlier than we had hoped.

Man. To win so many games and not even get to the NCAA tourney sucks.

Also, I think the ump blew that call at first base.
SFA Jack Fanatic

Bad call on the last play of the game. Shaylon Govan was NOT out at first base to end the game and the season for SFA. I'm not saying that SFA lost the game on that call, but it took away another plate appearance in the bottom of the 7th for the Ladyjacks.

Another year another conference tournament choke job. I've lost track of how many regular season champs we've had over the years that didn't make it the NCAA tournament because we lost a stupid conference tournament.

We had to have lost more conference tourneys than anyone else in the conference right?

Choke job is an absolutely horrific way to describe what happened. I will elaborate on the season later. Be better.

Because we get there more than anybody else? What are the facts?

That's definitely a part of it. Being a high level team means being in position to be upset in the tourney more often.

But I wonder if there's a way to get over the hump?

I want to run the numbers on it for all our tourney sports. Feel like there might be some small things we could do to maximize our tourney chances.

I don't feel like it's an issue that men's basketball has anymore and I feel like a significant piece there was playing high level teams early and treating it like tourney games.

I still remember Underwood calling a timeout after the Texas game was out of hand to coach the guys on what happened and how thatll cost them in March. He was so loud everyone in the Erwin center could hear him.

Don't just run the numbers for SFA. If you are going to do it, do all sports, all teams. Sam women tennis, and Nicholls MBB won regular season championships this year. Neither won the tournament.

In an ideal world, someone would have compiled the data of all conferences to compare to, but I'll see what I can find.
