The 2019 softball season is underway after going one and one in the Cowtown Classic . The Lady Lions defeated St. Mary’s (Kansas) 4-3 for their first game of the season and lost to Bellevue (Nebraska) 0-6. The second day of the tournament was cancelled due to weather; Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) started the third game but later called the game in the first inning.

SAGU started the first inning of St. Mary’s scoring three of their four runs which got them rolling for their first win. Casey Waterman and Rhian Journey both had two hits each which brought in a run each; Journey also accounted for one run on the day. Maddie Watson also had a hit for the Lady Lions which bought in a run, she is hitting 0.333 after the first weekend. Waterman pitched all seven innings for SAGU allowing four hits, three runs with two of them being earned.

The second game of the day the Lady Lions faced Monique Ashley who leads the nation in wins by a pitcher with three; she held them to two hits without giving up a run. Morgan Valentino and Natalie Voss record those two hits against Ashley which were both singles. Waterman finished the first three innings allowing a run from walking two batters without allowing a hit. Voss finished the rest of the game allowing seven hits and five earned runs while striking out three batters.
