The UNO softball team is off to a 22-3 record in 2013, the best start since 2002 and the best mark in the Summit League. Though the Mavs have yet to play a home game, UNO is already two wins away from matching their win total from 2012.
How have the Mavs been so successful? Look no further than the group of young talent assembled by Head Coach Jeanne Scarpello.
After dropping the first game of a doubleheader 3-0 to North Dakota at the Great West Conference Cluster on March 25, UNO head softball coach Jeanne Scarpello had had enough. It was the second time the Mavs had been shut out on the weekend and UNO had scored just 11 runs in five games.
If early success is any indication, the UNO softball team will enjoy playing at the new Westside Field at Westbrook. A week after sweeping UNK, the Mavs split a series with South Dakota then beat Peru State to improve to 4-1 at home and 17-13 overall.
