BYU has consistently had a strong softball team, and this year is no different. After winning in New Mexico over the weekend, they are now at 26-14 on the season, and 3-0 in conference play.

They feature a very potent offense that has been putting up big numbers all year. They have scored more than 10 runs nine different times, and are consistently scoring 7-9 runs.

They also have a solid pitching staff, that has thrown 13 shutouts this year, and has only allowed more than five runs twice all season.

The highlight of the year in pitching came March 28th when Christine Zinanti threw a no-hitter. Her only walk came against the first batter of the game, who was hit by a pitch.

It is unfortunate that TCU doesn’t have a softball team because that means there is no way I will get to see them play. Having been a softball coach, I look forward to any opportunity to watch a quality team play, and that is exactly what BYU has this year.
