2015 was a good year for the Lady Bears on the softball field.

They finished up the year with a loss in the Southern Conference final but tallied 37 wins to only 22 losses while going 10-7 in confer- ence play. This was the third best winning percentage in program history, and these ladies made a habit of break- ing records.

Taylor Miller broke the record for most hits by a bear in a single sea- son with 83 while also breaking the record for most at bats with 212. Riley Carter set the RBI record with 61 for the season. Meghan Rud broke the record for most stolen bases tally- ing 31.

Pitcher Kirsten Stevens racked up 26 wins during the regular sea- son and three more in the postseason. Stevens also provided the Lady Bears with their big- gest moment of the year when she struck out 11 batters en route to the first no-hitter in a So- Con tournament game. Stevens, however, left the program this sum- mer, transferring to the University of Wisconsin.

The Lady Bears fell to Chattanooga in the con- ference tournament title game in a close contest 3-1. Overall, the sea- son was one filled with successandheartbreak. The Bears fell just short of their bid to make the NCAA tournament but found their way on to the SportsCenter Top 10. This upcoming sea- son the Bears will look to replace the seniors and transfers while making another run at the SoCon title.
