The Freed-Hardeman University Lady Lion Softball Team advanced to the NAIA National Tournament opening round in Bowling Green, Kentucky, May 15-17, as an at-large qualifier. The team qualified with a 24-12 record and Top 25 ranking for much of the season.
Unfortunately, the team dropped a heartbreaker in the opening round of the NAIA National Tournament, suffering a 1-0 loss to No. 2 seed Campbellsville University. The team kept things scoreless through five innings of play in their second game, but a pair of two-run innings in the sixth and seventh by No. 1 seed University of Saint Francis sent the Lady Lions home with a 4-0 loss to end their season.
