While waiting for a full Summit League schedule next season, the UNO softball team was fortunate enough to get a conference invite for the 2012 season. After going 3-3 over the weekend at the Great Western Conference Cluster in Farmers Branch, Texas, the Mavs know they'll be playing as the no. 2 seed when the conference tournament comes up in mid-May.
Despite the UNO softball team posting an impressive 27-5 record so far this season, the team's toughest opponent thus far has been mother nature.
The UNO softball team ended a road trip to South Carolina and the Coastal Carolina Invitational taking two of three over the weekend. The Mavericks defeated St. Peter's 7-1 and lost to Coastal Carolina 5-0 on Friday, then defeated Dartmouth 5-1 on Saturday.
Head coach Jeanne Scarpello earned her 500th career win as the eighth-ranked UNO softball team ended the Southeastern Oklahoma State Invitational with a pair of wins Sunday.
