The top two MW softball teams met over the weekend and catch up with what happened in the series finale and where each team are in the standings with one more weekend left in the conference schedule. We also see who got Players of the Week honors in MW baseball and sprinkle in a bit of basketball news for flavor and good measure. Enjoy!
Aztecs Fall at Boise State, 9-6, in Series Finale
It was a battle for first place over the weekend in Boise as the defending MW Champs San Diego State won the first two games of the three game series. However, the Broncos shot out to an early 6 run lead and the Aztecs made it close, but couldn’t overcome it. The Broncos win left both teams mathematically tied for the regular season title with the Broncos still having two games left in Fresno next weekend where a split will give them the top seed in the year-end tournament in San Diego in less than two weeks.
