Konwent breaks record, Badgers drop regular season finale
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Kayla Konwent became the new all-time homerun leader at Wisconsin, as the Badgers dropped their regular season finale to Michigan 13-9.
It was senior day at Goodman Diamond and seven Badgers were honored from the softball program.
The seniors certainly shined on their big day, Morgan Kummer had a three-run blast in the first inning to give the Badgers a 3-2 edge over Michigan. Followed by fifth-year Kayla Konwent who went yard in the second inning to put Wisconsin ahead 5-2.
Sunday marked Konwent’s 32nd homerun as a Badger, breaking the previous record set by Chloe Miller.
The Wolverines would surge ahead in the sixth inning, scoring four runs to take the lead 10-9. After two homeruns in the seventh inning Michigan came away with the series sweep 13-9.
The Badgers will travel to East Lansing next week for the Big Ten Softball Tournament. UW was named the No. 8 seed and will face No. 9 Minnesota Wednesday at 3:30 pm CDT on Big Ten Network.
