BYU has consistently had a strong softball team, and this year is no different. After winning in New Mexico over the weekend, they are now at 26-14 on the season, and 3-0 in conference play.
They feature a very potent offense that has been putting up big numbers all year. They have scored more than 10 runs 9 different times, and are consistently scoring 7-9 runs.
They also have a solid pitching staff, that has thrown 13 shutouts this year, and has only allowed more than 5 runs twice all season.
The highlight of the year in pitching came March 28 when Christine Zinanti threw a no-hitter. Her only walk came against the first batter of the game, who was hit by a pitch.
It is unfortunate that TCU doesn’t have a softball team, because that means there is no way I will get to see them play. Having been a softball coach, I look forward to any opportunity to watch a quality team play, and that is exactly what a BYU has this year.
