On Saturday, Creighton softball seniors Tara Oltman and Renae Sinkler added to the Missouri Valley Conference record books in Saturday’s 9-5 game win over Evansville.
Oltman’s strikeout in the first inning gave her the MVC career record for Ks at 1,043 and Sinkler’s two home runs in the game gave her The Valley’s career home run mark with 48. Oltman would add nine more strikeouts over the weekend, plus her 136th start on Saturday was also a conference record.
