Truman Softball is off and running in the 2019 campaign. The Patriots finished 3rd in the Gold Bracket of the Greater Kansas City Tournament held on August 30 and 31. The Pats started strong with a 14-0 victory over William Chrisman, then stumbled with a 16-2 loss to Smithville. Truman responded the following day going 2-1 in gold bracket play with a 2-0 win over Warsaw, 10-0 loss to Park Hill and winning the 3rd place game against Platte County 5-0.
On Tuesday September 3rd, the Patriots traveled to Fort Osage and suffered a 6-3 non-con loss to the Indians, unable to overcome too many errors in the field. Showing signs of a resilient team, the ladies bounced back on Thursday the 5th with a 10-0 run rule victory over another non-con opponent Notre Dame deSion, committing no errors.
The Patriots will try to improve on their 4-3 overall record this upcoming week with a conference opening game against Liberty North on Tuesday beginning at 4:30 at Adair Park. The following day, Truman will travel to Lee’s Summit West for a 4:00 non-con match-up against the Titans.
