Trine wins Game 1


The Trine softball team beat Wisconsin-Oshkosh 7-6 in dramatic fashion in the NCAA Division III Super Regional opener at home Friday. 

Lainey McCue's RBI single in the bottom of the seventh knocked in the game-winner.


The Thunder (36-8) trailed 4-2 before picking up a run in the fourth and three runs in the fifth to take a 6-4 lead. The Titans (33-12) scored twice in the top of the sixth to tie the score at 6. 

The two teams play again Saturday at 1 p.m. in the second game of the possible three-game series. A Trine win means advancement to the Division III World Series. A win by Wisconsin-Oskosh means a second game at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.
