There was no denying the Albany State softball team in 2018. They blanked the SIAC in conference play and took home a championship on Saturday afternoon. Kentucky State came as close as anyone this year but came up short in a 4-3 loss at Albany. The Golden Rams finished 19-0 in SIAC play this season including the tournament.

Albany State and Kentucky State, both number one seeds in their respective divisions, had just met a day earlier. ASU sent Kentucky State into the loser’s bracket with a 2-1 decision then. It was a great effort by the Thorobretts but only in horseshoes and grenades does close really count.
