• The Mount Marty Lancer Softball team suffered a heartbreaking 1-0 walk-off loss after a STELLAR performance in their opening game of the NAIA Softball Championship Playoffs last night in Chickashaw, Oklahoma to the site host and #1 seed University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma. While the Lancers may have fallen short of a victory, they were kept in a position to win all game thanks to a brilliant pitching performance from Mo Vornhagen who tossed 6 and 1/3 innings, struck out five, and surrendered just 3 hits and the one game ending run. She was outdone however, by perhaps the most decorated pitcher in NAIA history, Emily Cerny, who tallied 14 strikeouts over 7 innings, and surrendering just three hits. The Lancers are still alive in the playoffs, but have a longer journey ahead, as they will need to make their way through the loser bracket beginning with their matchup today vs Ottawa University out of Kansas in an elimination game. KYNT has coverage beginning with a 2pm pregame show, 230pm first pitch.
