The South Dakota State Softball season came to an end on Sunday in Orlando after a wild weekend which saw a game be suspended on Saturday and moved to Sunday. SDSU went 1-2 in the tournament over the weekend.
SDSU lost the first game of the tournament 2-1 to Michigan allowing a two-run single in the bottom of the fifth and the only run pushed across was a Cylie Halvorson home run in the sixth. On Saturday, the Jacks and Villanova Wildcats had its game suspended midway through the contest and resumed on Sunday. SDSU went down 4-1 in the top of the seventh before tying the game up on two singles and a walk before walking it off in the bottom of the ninth on a Kelsey Lennox double to win 5-4. It put the Jacks back to face the Michigan Wolverines again and a three run shot in the top of the second put the Wolverines up 4-0 and it would be enough as Halvorson would hit a solo shot in the bottom of the seventh, but SDSU only had one other hit in the ballgame as the season came to an end.
The Jacks close out the season at 41-13. UCF would win the region going undefeated beating Michigan 9-4 in the championship. The Knights will face top ranked Oklahoma in the Super Regional this weekend.
