After Northern Illinois (16-18, 3-4 MAC) held off a Cardinal comeback in the first game for the 7-6 victory, Ball State Softball (26-11, 4-1 MAC) stormed back in the second game to defeat the Huskies 7-5 and split the doubleheader.
From freshman to seniors, every player has played some sort of role into the Cardinals success this season. The freshman class alone has accounted for 57 runs and eight home runs this season.
Crossing the finish line at the Carmel Marathon on March 31, 2018, junior biology major Chris Meyer, junior architecture major Katie Fedoronko and junior chemistry/pre-med major John Brown punched their tickets to Boston.
