Truman State to face GLVC foes Rockhurst and William Jewell
After moving up four more spots in this week's NFCA top-25 coaches' poll, the No. 21 Truman softball team takes to the road this Saturday and Sunday, visiting Rockhurst and William Jewell for a pair of Great Lakes Valley Conference doubleheaders.
The Bulldogs (26-5, 16-2 GLVC) have gone 8-0 since the last set of game notes, picking up three straight GLVC sweeps of Quincy (9-0 & 6-3), Missouri S&T (8-0 & 8-0), and Drury (2-1 & 3-0), while also taking care of former MIAA-rival Northwest Missouri by scores of 1-0 and 4-1.
This latest stretch has sent the Bulldogs to 24 wins in the team's last 26 games - broken up only by two one-run losses at current GLVC West division leader Missouri-St. Louis on March 23.
Truman has been on a tear both offensively and defensively this season, hitting .353 at the plate, while the tandem of Kindra Henze and Kelsea Dorsey have limited opponents with just a 1.06 combined ERA.
