  • Cowgirls win series with OPSU

    Making the most of its home debut, the New Mexico Highlands softball team won three of four games over Oklahoma Panhandle State this past weekend at Cowgirl Field.

    NMHU swept OPSU 11-6 and 11-2 on Saturday, then split on Sunday with a 16-8 loss and an 11-10 win.

    In the finale, the Aggies led 10-9 going into the bottom of the seventh. But Monica Capiral reached and scored the tying run on a Jamie Weatherbee hit. And Leah Osborn plated the walk-off winning run, driving Christian Bobian home.
