Creighton head coach Brent Vigness became the winningest coach in Creighton athletics history Thursday afternoon as his softball team defeated Iowa State 9-3 for the 565th victory of his Bluejay career. Vigness, now in his 18th season at Creighton, captured the victory just 30 miles from where he grew up in Zearing, Iowa.
The most tenured head coach in Bluejay softball history surpassed Creighton Athletics Hall of Famer Mary Higgins (1977-93) for most victories in program history.
Creighton looks to open its home schedule this weekend when it is slated to play a three-game Missouri Valley Conference series against Bradley. The Jays’ home-opening doubleheader against Bradley starts at noon on Saturday.
