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.
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.
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.
