The Bison softball team left no doubt as to who the top team in the Summit League is this year. The regular season champs took home the tournament crown today as well.

After dropping the first championship game, NDSU responded with 14 hits and 8 runs in game two, their most runs in nearly a month. They only needed 1 of those, though, because Whitney Johnson was fantastic, tossing a complete game 2-hitter with 4 strikeouts.

The Bison win 8-0, becoming the first League team to win four straight titles, and first since 2006 to win both the regular season and tournament title.

Darren Mueller – 4th Straight NCAA Tourney Appearance: “Very tough for any team to win a regular season, let alone a conference championship. For us to do them both this year shows that we have a special group and they kept performing. I can't say enough great things about them right now.”
