Marshall softball went 42-22 this past year in the most games ever played in one season. This was a jump start to a career at Marshall for head coach Megan Smith.
“Our players are blue collar workers who play with a chip on their shoulder,” Smith said. “Our team had to fight for every win.”
After the regular season came to an end, Marshall was in fourth place headed into the Conference USA tournament. Despite the Herd’s early wins during the tournament vs. UTSA and North Texas, they dropped a game vs Louisiana Tech, but later took North Texas again, sending them to the championship game vs Louisiana Tech.
