DENTON, Texas - The New Mexico softball team (2-10) fell to North Texas, 8-6, and Wichita State, 4-3, in day one action of the Betlin Mean Green Classic hosted by North Texas.

In game one against the Mean Green, North Texas jumped on the board first with two runs in the fifth. New Mexico fired back in the bottom of the inning to take a 6-4 lead. Sophomore Ryanne Hodgins doubled to drive in classmate Becky Dover and freshman Ashley Allen. Senior Ashley Shartzer followed with a grand slam that scored Hodgins, junior Kristina Schmallen and sophomore Amy Ray.

Two two-RBI singles in the seventh gave the Mean Green the win. New Mexico tried to rally with runners on first and second with two out but freshman Christina Rios couldn't keep the game alive, flying out to left field.
