*Softball (29-19) finished the regular season with a four-game series sweep over Bacone College. With the wins, the Aggies have assured themselves of the first winning season in program history! Versus Bacone, OPSU allowed a total of just eight hits and two total runs to the Warriors. Kayli Grove had the hot bat, going 6-for-10 in the series…all extra-base hits (4 doubles, 1 triple, 1 homerun)! Next up for OPSU is the SAC tournament beginning Thursday.

*Baseball (20-25) took two of three games in its final regular season series versus Mid-America Christian. In the Aggies’ win in game one of the set, pitcher Yesiel Valdez threw a complete game gem. Valdez allowed just two hits and two runs – just one earned – in improving his record to 6-4 on the year. He struck out seven Evangels and walked just three. Next up for OPSU is the SAC tournament beginning Friday.

*Rodeo capped its regular season by hosting the Doc Gardner Memorial Rodeo. For the Aggies’ men, Jade Taton won the Bareback championship and clinched the Central Plains Region All-Around championship, as well. Kaylee Smith claimed the regional title in Goat Tying. Both teams have qualified for the college national championship rodeo.
