Rio Grande/RSC Sports Information
    MIDDLETOWN, Ohio – The University of Rio Grande posted a sixth-place finish in the battle for the River States Conference Commissioner's All-Sports Cup.
    The RSC Commissioner's All-Sports Cup is based on the combined finish in all sports. The RSC Cup standings are tabulated based on regular-season finish in the sports that have regular-season standings. For sports that do not have regular-season standings, the championship meet or tournament is used.
    The standings are based on a 10-point scoring system. First place in a sport earns 10 points, second place earns nine and so on. For sports that have more than 10 schools competing, no points are earned for schools finishing below 10th place.
    Each school's point total is divided by the number of RSC championship sports sponsored by that school, which produces an average point total of each school out of 10.

[Softball] Grizzlies upend Rio, earn World Series berth

Rio Grande Sports Information
    LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – To a large degree, Georgia Gwinnett College made its bones during the 2019 season with a potent offensive attack.
    But the eighth-ranked Grizzlies have also shown a propensity to be timely at the plate as well.
    In Wednesday afternoon's championship first final of the NAIA Softball National Championship Opening Round's Lawrenceville Bracket, the University of Rio Grande learned the accuracy of the latter.
    Sydney Pelaez delivered a one-out, run-scoring single in the bottom of the sixth inning to break a 2-2 tie and, one out later, Holly Janco drove home Pelaez with a back-breaking insurance run to give the top-seeded Grizzlies a 4-2 win over the No. 4 seed RedStorm at a sun-splashed Grizzly Softball Complex.
    Georgia Gwinnett improved to 42-14 with the win – its second of the tourney and fourth of the season against Rio Grande – and earned a second straight berth to the NAIA World Series.
    Rio Grande, which was making its second appearance in an Opening Round title game in three seasons, finished its season at 36-16.
