This week’s HR Sports Star is the Christopher Newport University softball team.
The Captains, ranked 11th in the nation and riding an 8-game winning streak, are coming off a second straight regional championship last weekend that saw them win three consecutive games. CNU defeated Salem College and Randolph-Macon College twice to reach the Super Regional.
The team is now 30-7 and Friday begin play in the Super Regional at 4th ranked Salisbury. The teams have played three times this season, with the Captains winning all three.
The next step towards winning a national championship begins today and the Captains are ready and prepared for the challenge.
Congratulations and best of luck to the Captains of CNU.
