It’s a new day for the Chico State Wildcat Softball team. After a near flawless regular season and post-season run the Wildcats experienced their first bit of adversity by falling to Saint Leo in their opening game 3-2. The Wildcats had numerous opportunities to get on the board, leaving the bases loaded in the 1st and 3rd innings and managing only run in those innings.
The Cats also went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position striking out four times and popping up twice. It was an uncharacteristic performance by the Wildcats who took pride all year in getting those big hits in those big spots.
Chico gets a chance at redemption and a chance to continue in the National Championship Tournament as they play Southern Arkansas today. Southern Arkansas fell to St. Anselm 2-1 in 9 innings yesterday.
