"We are so excited," grins sophomore Riley Landenberger. "I can't wait to get down there. That's been our goal I think since the second-year group came in as freshmen. We've been looking forward to going down to Mississippi. Now, it's actually happening, and it's really cool. It's a big thing for our program. So, we're excited to do it."

The Wolfpack are heading to the NJCAA Division II National Softball Championship with a 49-8 record.

"I personally feel like we're peaking," says sophomore Ashley Kniesel. "This is an amazing  to feel that way. I think we started peaking maybe two weeks ago. All of our bats are on. We've just been playing really well. That makes me so excited for Mississippi."
