After a six hour rain delay the championship game that was originally set to begin at 1:30 p.m. had a first pitch at 7:30 p.m.

The Fightin’ Texas Aggie Softball Team will head to Gainesville, Florida after beating the Baylor Bears 10-4. The Bears were first on the scoreboard but the Aggies did not let that phase them. In the fifth-inning the Aggie offense scored seven runs after a reversed call at first base. The Bears went on to score another run but could not recover.
