Former Fortuna Huskies Hailey and Camrin Dolcini are both competing in Fayetteville, Arkansas, this week in different NCAA playoff sports on the same campus.
The talented sisters are each enjoying outstanding seasons in their respective sports and hoping to keep it going.
Older sister Hailey is a “super senior” on the University of Texas softball team and is playing in the NCAA Softball Super Regional with a place in next week’s College World Series up for grabs.
The Longhorns are playing a three-game series against the host Arkansas Razorbacks, who are the No. 4 team in the nation, with the action getting under way on Thursday.
Younger sister Camrin, meanwhile, is a freshman pole vaulter for the Nevada Wolf Pack and has qualified for the NCAA Track and Field West Preliminary Rounds. She also was competing in Fayetteville on Thursday.
Camrin is coming off a big performance at last weekend’s Mountain West Championships, where she won a bronze medal in the event.
The former Huskies multi-sport standout crushed her previous best of 3.80 meters after clearing 4.02 meters on her way to the podium finish.
The PR places her fourth on the program’s all-time list, a remarkable achievement in just her freshman campaign.
On Thursday, she was one of only 11 freshmen competing in the pole vault out of 48 athletes.
Hailey and the Longhorns, meanwhile, fell 7-1 in the series opener against Arkansas.
The former Husky took the loss in the circle, pitching 4.1 innings and allowing two earned runs on seven hits and four walks, while striking out four.
The four-time Big 5 MVP is coming off a huge weekend at the Seattle Super Regional, pitching 21 innings over two days to lead the Longhorns to victory and a place in the Super Regionals.
Dolcini and the Texas women won two of three games against No. 11 Washington and the senior ace dominated in the circle once again.
This week’s series continues on Friday at 3:30 p.m. and the game will be televised live on ESPN2.
