May 19, 2006

Tuscaloosa, Ala. ---  The Mississippi Valley State Devilettes quest to win their first ever NCAA Regional suffered a setback today when they dropped a 8-0 decision to fourth ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in the opening round of the 2006 NCAA Regional Tournament.

The Devilletes never could get on track failing to place a runner on base in the four and a half inning game, while the host Tide pounded out eight hits in the winning effort.

Freshman, pitcher Nikki Stouder (7-9) suffered the loss going the distance for the Devilettes. 

Valley now having to advance to the finals through the loser’s bracket will face the Rattlers of Florida A&M in an elimination game at 4:00 p.m. tomorrow.  The Rattlers suffered a 9-3 loss to the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in the tournament opener.

Georgia Tech will face Alabama at 1:00 p.m
