The Bulldogs softball team returned to NCAA regional play for the third-straight season and 17th overall time in school history.
Truman finished the regular season with a 30-18 record and garnered the No. 6 overall seed in the Midwest Regional. However, the offense that had propelled the Bulldogs all season went cold against some of the toughest pitchers in the region at the tournament, and they lost two games by scores of 3-0 and 2-0 to see their season come to an end.
Freshman Christa Reisinger was named the GLVC Freshman of the Year and was part of six All-GLVC selections for coach Erin Brown’s team. Reisinger hit .402 in 49 games with six doubles, four triples and nine home runs. Reisinger stole 42 bases out of 48 attempts to lead the GLVC by 15 steals. Senior pitcher Kindra Henze was the other first-team all-conference selection and posted a 1.93 ERA with a 12-9 overall record.
Fellow pitcher and senior Kelsea Dorsey earned second-team All-GLVC honors for the fourth straight year. The third team was dominated by infielders in senior third baseman Cate Simon, junior catcher Lex Van Nostrand and sophomore first baseman Ashley Murphy. Simon led the team in home runs with 11 and Van Nostrand was first in RBIs with 35.
