BYU Baseball on a Roll

BYU Radio Sports Update!

BYU Baseball is on a winning streak after sweeping the three game series against #1 ranked San Francisco this weekend. Despite the bad weather BYU put up a great fight winning all three games (14-4, 6-5, and 3-2). Freshman Colton Shaver had a hot bat this weekend and added to his season batting record for a total of 10 home-runs and an incredible 27 RBIs. This week BYU Baseball will play UVU Tuesday night and have a 3 game series with Pacific through the weekend.

The Men's Volleyball team had an upset in California for the MFSP quarterfinals. They lost in a 5 game set to #4 ranked USC. Head coach Chris McGown said, "I thought we showed up for the most part tonight when we needed to. I liked the way we battled back throughout the match, especially in the last three sets. Ultimately, USC made just a few more critical plays at critical times and that cost us the match." Even though its the end of the season, BYU still had 5 seniors be awarded ALL-MPSF awards this season. 

McKenna Bull was on fire this week against #2 San Diego. She only let 9 hits and 5 runs go in the 3 game series. BYU Softball swept San Diego for the series win. This week the team will welcome Weber on Tuesday and will travel to California for a 3 game series against Santa Clara.

BYU Radio sports update!

They announced a huge recruit with Kyle Deans who signed a National Letter of Intent with BYU Baseball last Wednesday. This week they will take on long time rivals University of Utah and have a three game series against San Francisco.

BYU Softball was rained out against Weber State last week, but had a double header against SUU. Both teams split the double header, coming up with one win and one lose.
