WEST POINT, Miss. — Despite two ranked teams and multiple ranked individuals the biggest opponent for any team at the Old Waverly Collegiate Championship ended up being Mother Nature as Monday’s play was delayed due to rain and halted in the middle of the second round due to darkness at the Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point Monday evening.
Louisiana Tech University struggled to score runs against the Cornhuskers as Zach Hirsch held the Louisiana Tech offense to five hits as Nebraska (12-6) powered its way past the Bulldogs, 9-2, at Hawks Field Thursday afternoon.
Tech (9-8) left nine men on base while the Cornhuskers recorded 11 hits, including two home runs, to take game one of the four-game series.
