Daren Hays didn’t lose the key to PlainsCapital Park. It just so happened his Lubbock Christian University softball team played its first 35 games on the road.
LCU finally gets around to playing its home opener today, and it’s a big one. The sixth-ranked Lady Chaps (29-6, 3-1 in the Sooner Athletic Conference) host No. 13 St. Gregory’s (19-2, 0-0) in doubleheaders at 2 p.m. today and noon Saturday.
So far this season, LCU has been to San Antonio, Hobbs, N.M., Fort Worth, Shawnee, Okla., and Tucson, Ariz., usually playing games in bunches.
