It was the longest game in the NCAA Division I history of the Lipscomb softball program and it will be remembered most for the disappointing way it ended.
It was a good start and a not so good ending for the Lady Bisons in the second day of the Chattanooga Challenge.
The Lady Bisons followed the leads of Katie Turner, Amy Vetula and Megan Gray on the way to wins against Marshall and Ohio in the first day of the Chattanooga Challenge.
The Lady Bisons will face Marshall, Western Kentucky, Bowling Green State and Ohio this weekend at the Chattanooga Challenge.
Gray took the mound in two of Lipscomb’s three games at the Trojan Classic in Troy, Alabama over the weekend, winning both.
Megan Gray gave up a single in the first inning and then retired the next 21 hitters in a row for an almost perfect game.
Heavy fog covered the field at the Troy Softball Complex Saturday night forcing the game between Lipscomb and Troy to be canceled after one inning.
The Lady Bisons opened the season 1-1 after losing 2-0 to host Troy Friday night in the Troy Classic.
Coach Kristin Ryman expects her team to play "small ball" and continue the team's trademark of gritty determination. Both were on display in the season-opening 3-2 win over Western Kentucky in the Troy Classic.
Lipscomb softball coach Kristin Ryman always strives to assemble a deep roster, but this season she may have outdone herself.
