The No. 21 Greyhounds swept Missouri-St. Louis in the semifinals and went on to beat University of Southern Indiana 5-2 in the Sunday finals. In Friday’s first round, senior Luke Hubert posted his 81st singles win, setting a new UIndy record.

The 2nd-ranked softball team claimed its second-ever GLVC title over the weekend, downing three-time reigning champs Missouri-St. Louis 7-1. Pitcher Morgan Foley continued her stellar senior season, winning all four games, throwing her fifth no-hitter of the year and breaking her own UIndy record for strikeouts in a season.

Prior to the tournament, Foley was named GLVC Pitcher of the Year, and head coach Melissa Frost received her fifth career GLVC Coach of the Year honor.

The 50-3 Greyhounds are seeded No. 1 in the Midwest Region and will host the first of two Midwest Regionals this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Read more about the softball team here.
