POCATELLO – Idaho Sate University Bengals defeated Sacramento State 3-2 on Saturday, April 12 at Miller Ranch Stadium.
Shoshone-Bannock tribal member Jennie Murillo #55 is a freshman catcher for the team.
Murillo says the team is doing pretty good so far this season and is working on being consistent.
The team is currently 24-17 overall and 6-3 in Big Sky Conference play.
The Bengals hosted Utah Valley on April 15 and will host Northern Colorado April 19-20; this team is tied with them for second place in conference.
This year, Murillo has been helping out in the bullpen warming up the pitchers and is designated as a pinch hitter, which is a substitute batter.
Formerly, Murillo played for Century High School and views the major difference between high school and college softball is college is more competitive.
She is most looking forward to taking another conference championship with her teammates.
After the game on Saturday the team met with fans and signed autographs on the first baseline.
Murillo is the daughter of Larry and Rita Murillo.
