As the second seed Drake is sitting back and waiting at the Missouri Valley Conference softball tournament in Omaha. The Bulldogs have a bye into Friday’s semifinal round.

Drake coach Rich Calvert says they are in the postseason now and any chance to represent the school is important. He says he is more concerned about how the Bulldogs will play rather than who they play. “I’m kind of old school here, I don’t get caught up in looking at statistics…it’s a gut feeling in our game in making decisions when you’ve got to make them,” Calvert says.

Calvert says in a single elimination format anything can happen. He says he tells the team every year its about making the right pitches, timely hitting, a little bit of luck and you see what happens.

Drake is 29-19 overall.
