  • 2021 Season

    The SDSU softball teams opens their season at the UNI Dome this weekend. Here's the full game schedule:
    • 11:15 a.m. Friday – vs. Iowa State (11-13 overall)
    • 6 p.m. Friday – vs. Drake (8-16 overall)
    • 2:45 p.m. Saturday – vs. Drake
    • 5 p.m. Saturday – at Northern Iowa (7-14 overall)
    • 9 a.m. Sunday – vs. Butler (15-8 overall)

    After three straight winning seasons, SDSU was picked to finish 2nd in the Summit. For a team that returns essentially their entire starting lineup, it's very encouraging to see some freshman in competition for starting spots. When Coach Wood arrived in 2015, the team ERA was 6.03 which she has helped drop to 2.90 last year. Should be a fun year!

    What a start for the softball team! After opening the season 4-1 at the UNI Dome, the Jacks have a perfect weekend in Colorado to move their record to 9-1. Grace Glanzer threw a no-hitter against a quality PAC-12 team, Oregon State, which set the tone for the weekend. SDSU scored 44 runs while allowing only 10 (8 came in game 2 against CO St.)

    The offense has been very good with Cylie Halvorson leading the Summit in HRs, Peyton Daugherty 2nd in BA and steals, and Rozelyn Carrillo 2nd in RBIs and HRs.

    The freshman pitchers, Grace Glanzer and Tori Kneische, have been dominant. Kneische has a 4-0 record, 1.17 ERA, and 34 strikeouts in 24 innings. Glanzer has a 3-1 record with a 1.93 ERA, 19 strikeouts, and the aforementioned no-hitter against Oregon State. Future is bright for this team!

      Softball team sweeps KC to open Summit League play. The Jacks now sit at the top with a 19-4 record. SDSU leads the Summit in every offensive category expect doubles (2nd), walks (4th), and stolen bases (3rd). Defensively, they lead the Summit in fielding percentage and ERA.

      Individually, the young Jackrabbits have been incredible. Emma Osmundson (SF Lincoln) is leading the league in batting average (.481), triples (4), and is in the top 10 in several other categories. Peyton Daugherty is 3rd in batting average (.376), 1st in runs (24), 1st in hits (32), and 2nd in steals (12). Cylie Halvorson (SF Roosevelt) is tied for 1st in HRs (8) and 3rd in RBIs (23). Tori Kneische leads the league in ERA (1.94) and wins (9). Grace Glanzer (SF Roosevelt) is 3rd in ERA (2.61) and 2nd in wins (8). Again, 3 of these players (Glanzer, Osmundson, and Kneische) are freshman.

      I'm really excited about the future of Jackrabbit softball and think this is the year they finally have a great chance at winning the Summit League. This team is incredibly young and talented and I would love to see the program generate more interest!

        I have been following them along since the beginning of the season. Their young pitching staff has been insanely good! Complete, no-hitter games good! I agree that they should be generating more interest, especially on this board. Softball and soccer are both fantastic programs having great seasons but do not seem to have the same following as the "revenue" sports. They deserve the casual fans notice right now!

          We did a special episode last night focused on soccer and softball. I was joined by Andrew Sogn (former SID), Julia Lam (Soccer alum) and Ali Herdliska (softball alum). It was a really fun episode to record and I learned plenty. Give it a listen. https://anchor.fm/jackrabbit-illstrt...Special-eusjg7

            I've noticed that since we've hired coach Woods into the softball program, we've become dramatically better, as long as we can retain her as coach, I believe the program will continue to only get better and better. As far as soccer, yes our fantastic coach left , but the coaching there too remains strong and the program too, just wish we could elevate our Volleyball program and keep them there as we have done in soccer and softball, Wbb, etc. I enjoy watching all these teams play. Call me a fair weather fan, but, lets face it, watching wins is far better than watching a loss, but, I do appreciate any athlete who goes out and puts forth their best effort, it's hard doing that when the reward for it is minimal, but they do it for the joy of playing the sport, none the less.
