Softball prepares for Hoosier Classic

When looking at the MSU softball team’s record (7-15) the initial impulse is to assume the team isn’t very good. But the Spartans have gone through a grueling preseason that head coach Jacquie Joseph touts as the toughest in the country and said, as a result, the team’s record is deceiving.


Hansen honored for senior season

MSU softball senior shortstop Lindsey Hansen was named a 2011 Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association, or NFCA, Division I All-American, the association announced Wednesday. For her outstanding final season performance for MSU, Hansen received a third-team at-large shortstop selection.


Three MSU softball players earn all-conference honors

After the MSU softball team concluded its season last weekend, the Spartans had three players selected for All-Big Ten honors, the conference announced Wednesday. Junior catcher Brett Williams was named First Team All-Big Ten, and senior shortstop Lindsey Hansen and junior third baseman Ali Grant were second and third team honorees, respectively.


Softball, baseball games postponed

The MSU softball team’s doubleheader scheduled for today against conference foe Purdue has been postponed due to inclement weather forecasted in for the East Lansing area. The MSU baseball team also had its Tuesday matchup against Western Michigan postponed due to weather.


MSU heads to Northwestern for two games

Taking notes from two road losses to Iowa last weekend, the MSU softball team will remain on the road ­— playing a doubleheader against Northwestern on Today — setting out to accomplish the same goals it had before the weekend: play tough infield defense.
