Aggie softball, WAC champs

The New Mexico State Aggie softball team should be proud of their accomplishment as WAC champion.

They are now bound for an NCAA Regional and are playing with a ton of confidence.

This is a club that hasn't hit a bad patch of ball all year — 43 wins in 58 games attest to that.

They have strong leadership with their seven seniors and head coach Kathy Rodolph has done an outstanding job building the program in her eight years at the school.

Successful teams at the NCAA Tournament have at least one exceptional pitcher and the Aggies are a team that's built more around their offense — although Alex Newman threw a masterful game in the WAC finale and freshman Celisha Walker has the tools to be outstanding.

But the No. 1 thing the Aggies have going for them right now is that they're playing with a certain belief and confidence. We'll see how it plays out next weekend at Regionals.

Win or lose, they are a good team that is playing well.

Finally something good about NM State athletics...I only wish they were playing in the Austin regional so I can see them play...was disappointed they ended up in Tucson, but I guess geographically it makes the most sense.
