Softball Hosts With Hospitality and Heartbreak

The Bennies ended the season 30-10 overall – just the third time in program history the team has won 30 or more games. Saint Benedict also reached the region championship game for the third time in program history, and earned the right to host a regional for the first time after posting a 28-8 record through the MIAC Tournament and an impressive strength of schedule.

Prior to this spring, CSB hadn’t hosted an NCAA postseason event since the basketball team hosted two games of the NCAA Tournament in March 2009. The weekend was a fantastic showcase for the highly regarded CSB Softball Complex.

Elly Novak ’23 and Gabby Spencer ’23 earned National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Region First Team honors. Gabby went on to be named MIAC Player of the Year and a First Team All-American (Saint Benedict’s first-ever First Team honor).
