Raiders Fall One Game Shy of National Title Bid


Southern Oregon University softball finished their hopeful championship run around 2:55 a.m. (ET) on Thursday, falling to Columbia College (Mo.), 6-2 in the NAIA World Series.

SOU had won-out after falling in their bracket-opener on Friday to Marian University.

The Raiders would later eliminate Marian on their path to a double-header Wednesday/Thursday, first upsetting the defending champs, Oklahoma City before falling to Columbia.

Their final record was 51-15, posting a program-best season in their advancement during the World Series.

SOU finished third in the final 2018 standings (in terms of the bracket format).
