  • Husky softball had a mostly excellent weekend at the Mary Nutter Classic in Southern California. The Dawgs lost their one game against a ranked opponent- Kentucky- with an extra-inning meltdown to the tune of eight runs. They were unblemished the rest of the weekend, winning their other four games by a combined score of 39-0, including a Kelley Lynch no-hitter against Bethune Cookman.
