WICHITA, Kan. - The Wichita State softball team will host Butler County in an evening doubleheader tonight at Wilkins Stadium beginning at 5 p.m.
Wichita State comes into the game having split their opening four games of the fall season. This past weekend the Shockers defeated Cowley County, 10-4, before being edged by Western Oklahoma State, 7-2, on a cold and windy day at Wilkins Stadium.
Highlights from the weekend included Shocker senior Danika Miller belting two home runs in the victory over Cowley County as well as a strong four innings of work in the pitching circle for senior Katie Armagost.
Butler County will pose a considerable challenge with many players receiving recruiting interest from Division-I programs. Sophomores Mac and Alex Millspaugh have already signed with MVC rival Creighton for the 2013-14 season.
Following the doubleheader against Butler County, the Shockers will embark on their first and only set of road games of the fall season Sat., Oct. 13 in Stillwater, Okla. where they will face off with Tulsa and Oklahoma State at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., respectively.
