Senior Cassie Keck now holds UNK's single season softball home run record. Keck pulled herself to this record with three home runs against Adams State College. With two more home runs, Keck will take the career record as well at UNK. Although getting close to this record, Keck's only concern right now is about her team record and making it into the conference tournament.
Senior Cassie Keck, a special education major from Blair, has recently set the UNK’s single season home run record in a two-game sweep against Adams State College.
With only three home runs separating her from the record, Keck put two in the yard in the Lopers 3-0 win against Adams State.
In the second game, Keck was able to find the sweet spot once more to get her 16th home run of the season.
Now tied for first in all of Division II, Keck has a minimum of 14 games left to hit her last two home runs and will then own the career record as well.
“I am very excited I have the record, but the only record that matters is our team record. We still have plenty of season left to make our mark and get into the conference tournament,” Keck said.
The Lopers, on the other hand, are sporting a dismal .333 win percentage and are ranked second to last, ahead of New Mexico Highlands.
The last of the season does not look to get any easier as the team (11-22) takes on Regis University (21-16), New Mexico Highlands (7-32), Fort Hays State (20-18) and Metro State College (24-11).
