Seniors to be Honored After Saturday's Contest With Utah State
RENO, Nev. - The University of Nevada softball team will take on Utah State in a three-game WAC series at Hixson Park, beginning with a doubleheader Friday at 2 p.m.
Immediately following the third game of the series, which will begin at 1 p.m., Nevada's three outgoing seniors will be honored by the team.
Justine Cooper, Britton Murdock and Danielle Patrick are in their final seasons on the field for the Wolf Pack.
Cooper, a Sparks native, came to Nevada last season after spending two years at Southern Oregon University.
Murdock and Patrick were a part of back-to-back WAC Championships in 2008 and 2009, helping those teams earn NCAA Tournament bids in the same seasons.
In addition to their team accomplishments, Murdock is among the all-time leaders at Nevada in many offensive categories, including stolen bases. She has stolen more than 20 bases in her career and has never been caught stealing.
Patrick ranks among the top five all-time at Nevada in a number of categories, including home runs and RBI.
Friday and Saturday will be 60's and 70's day respectively at Hixson Park, as anyone born in those decades will get in for free. The music at the park will reflect the era as well, as the hits of each decade will be played throughout the weekend.
Live statistics, as well as a video streaming product, will be available for each game at NevadaWolfPack.com.
