ATHENS, May 3, 2013—TVCC Sports Notes contains TVCC athletic updates and events. Read below to find out what’s new.

SOFTBALL

How ‘bout those Lady Cardinals! They played bracket buster in the cold, gusting north wind and mist Thursday in the opening round of the Region XIV Conference in Corsicana. The Lady Cardinals, the No. 4 East seed, pulled off a shocker with a 5-2 win against Galveston, the No. 1 South seed and the nation’s eighth-ranked team.

Coach Ashley Johnston’s squad, now 31-23, used a four-run fourth inning to fuel the college’s first-ever regional tournament win and the biggest win in the history of the softball program. The Lady Cardinals were hitless through the first three innings.

Galveston, which defeated the Lady Cardinals 8-0 the first weekend in March, dropped to 42-16.

The Lady Cardinals are scheduled to return to action today against Blinn (32-18). Blinn was a 12-2 winner against the Lady Cardinals in March.

With a win against Blinn, the Lady Cardinals would play at 3 p.m. Saturday against the Paris-Northeast winner. With a loss, they would play at 10 a.m. Saturday against the Alvin-San Jacinto winner.

In Thursday’s other games in the opening round, it was: Northeast 5, San Jacinto 0; Blinn 9, Navarro 1 and Paris 7, Alvin 6.

The top two teams in the tournament qualify for the national tournament May 15-18 in St. George, Utah.
