Texas Wesleyan Is Conference Champion

I need to depart from politics for a minute to do a little bragging about the school I earned my college degree from -- Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth. The girls on the TWU Rams softball team have grabbed a well-deserved berth in the NAIA national softball tournament.

The Wesleyan girls had a great season, finishing first in the regular conference schedule with a  20-4 record. That was good enough to give them the top seed in the Red River Athletic Conference tournament. They then went undefeated in the conference tournament, beating Our Lady of the Lake 5-2 in yesterday's championship game.

I congratulate the Texas Wesleyan Rams softball team on what has already been a great season. They should all be proud of their accomplishment. But now they get the chance to go even further. They get to play in the NAIA national playoffs.

Good luck, and know that the Wesleyan alumni out here are proud of you and are pulling for you. We know you'l do your best.

For those of you not familiar with the Red River Athletic Conference, here are the other schools in it:

Bacone College (Muskogee, Oklahoma)
Huston-Tillotson University (Austin, Texas)
Jarvis Christian College (Hawkins, Texas)
Langston University (Langston, Oklahoma)
Louisiana State University-Shreveport (Shreveport, Louisiana)

Our Lady of the Lake University (San Antonio, Texas)
Paul Quinn College (Dallas, Texas)
