Mike White and the Texas Longhorns took care of business on Friday night, taking down Seton Hall 8-0 to advance to the winners’ bracket on Saturday.

The Longhorns played in front of a packed house at Red & Charline McCombs Field, and rode a wave of momentum to their first victory of the 2023 NCAA Softball Tournament.

Thanks to a high-flying offense and some of the best pitching of the season from the likes of Mac Morgan and Estelle Czech, the Longhorns dominated from the first pitch on.

 

If you’re looking for a headline to talk about in the Longhorns five inning, run-rule victory over Seton Hall, look no further than Texas’ bullpen.

Friday’s game featured the first combined no-hitter in Texas’ postseason history. Mac Morgan started things off for the Longhorns and didn’t give up a single hit. Head coach Mike White elected to make a pitching change heading into the fourth inning in an effort to keep his starter fresh for the rest of the weekend, and on came Estelle Czech.

Czech pitched the final two innings to complete the no-hitter, doubling up with Mac Morgan to make history for the orange and white. Texas looks to build on their impressive victory in Saturday’s second-round matchup between a battle of fellow Texas schools.

Texas awaits the winner of Texas A&M and Texas State, with the winner taking on the Longhorns Saturday at 2:00 p.m. CT, and the loser facing elimination against Seton Hall at 4:30.
