Lady Techster Softball Wins 2008 WAC Tournament Title

Head coach Sarah Dawson and the Lady Techsters entered the 2008 WAC Tournament in Honolulu as the No. 4 seed and few people had much hope as the program had never won more than one game in the postseason event. However, over the course of four days in early May, the Lady Techsters reeled off one of the most remarkable runs in LA Tech Athletics history as they recorded four straight one-run wins over four Top 25 teams to capture the title.  Tech defeated No. 22 Hawaii 2-1, No. 10 Fresno State 3-2, No. 17 Nevada 4-3 and No. 17 Nevada 2-1. With the title, Tech earned its ninth appearance (first since 1995) in the NCAA Tournament.
