[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.

[Softball] Rio blanks Bears, Generals to reach title game

Rio Grande Sports Information
    LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. – With his team staring elimination – and then end of its season – directly in the face, University of Rio Grande head softball coach Chris Hammond couldn't have asked for a pair of better pitching performances than the ones his team received from the duo of Kelsey Conkey and Raelynn Hastings.
    Conkey tossed a one-hit shutout against 12th-ranked Truett-McConnell (Ga.) University, while Hastings blanked Louisiana State University-Alexandria on two hits to send the RedStorm into the championship round of the NAIA Softball National Championship Opening Round's Lawrenceville Bracket.
    Tuesday's 1-0 win over second-seeded Truett-McConnell at the Grizzly Softball Complex and subsequent 3-0 triumph over LSU-Alexandria, the bracket's No. 3 seed, put Rio Grande (36-15) opposite of top-seeded – and eighth-ranked – Georgia Gwinnett College (41-14) in Wednesday's title matchup.
