Truman State Softball Returns to GLVC Tournament

For the first time since 2019, Truman State will make an appearance in the GLVC Softball Championship Tournament. The Bulldogs clinched the tourney berth after rattling off four straight wins to close the regular season. Coach Ron Ferrill says a two-game series with Indianapolis was an eye-opener for the Bulldogs.

Emily Wood and Cassie Smith are the top two hitters for the Bulldogs. Ferrill says Smith’s recent play has led her to the leadoff spot, allowing Wood to be effective batting third.

Ferrill points out junior pitcher Maddie Anderson as another key piece for the ‘Dogs.

Truman will look for its first win this season against Drury in the first round matchup.

The Bulldogs and Panthers begin tournament play Thursday evening at the Eastside Centre in East Peoria, Illinois.
