EDMOND, OK – Augustana Softball won its NCAA Division II Tournament opener Thursday, edging Arkansas Tech 1-0 in the Central Regional.
Ashley Mickschl pitched a one-hitter and struck out four in her 22nd complete game of the season. Abby Lien homered in the first inning for the game’s only run.
Augustana will play Central Oklahoma on Friday afternoon. A win would put the Vikings in the championship bracket on Saturday. A loss would have them playing again on Friday evening.
