The Lady Cardinals made school history Saturday, clinching the school’s first-ever national tournament berth with a third straight win in the Region XIV Tournament in Corsicana.

Coach Ashley Johnston’s squad defeated eighth-ranked Galveston (8-2), Blinn (3-2) and Paris (7-5) to punch a ticket to St. George, Utah for the national tournament May 15-18.

The Lady Cardinals went on to finish second in the tournament, falling twice to Paris in the championship games. Paris was an 8-2 winner in the first game and took a 5-4 nine-inning decision in the second.

The Lady Cardinals will carry a 33-25 record to the national tournament.

National tournament pairings will be announced this weekend after all regional tournament play has concluded.

Other schools joining the Lady Cardinals and Paris as qualifiers to this point are Georgia Perimeter College, Pitt Community College (North Carolina), Pima Community College (Arizona), Santa Fe College (Florida) and Chipola College (Florida).
