Final eight-updated

The Saint Joseph's College softball team made it to the final eight in the NCAA Division II tournament by defeating Northern Kentucky today. They are the only GLVC team left in the field, and have the fewest wins (34) of the teams in the field. Until this year, I do not believe that SJC ever made the NCAA tournament, so they have had an outstanding season. Their next opponent is Southern Connecticut State on Wednesday.

In other sports news, Rensselaer discuss thrower extraordinaire Chelsie Meeks broke the Hoosier Conference discus record at West Lafayette last night and she did it emphatically. Her throw of 137 feet nine inches crushed the old mark of 130 feet five inches set in 1997 by a Benton Central girl. You can download the results of the meet here.

Update: Saint Joe's softball team lost its first game to Southern Connecticut 2-3, beat and eliminated Flagler University 5-3, than lost to and was eliminated by UC-San Diego 1-2 in 11 innings.
