Stillman was 35-12 during the regular season and completed its second straight 30-win season during the 2024 season. They finished third in the Southern States Athletic Conference Championships.

On day one on Monday, Stillman made history, becoming the first NBCU to ever win an opening-round game of the NAIA Softball Tournament. The Tigers had nine hits that resulted in seven runs for the 7-3 win over Indiana Southeast.

On Tuesday, Stillman's historic run took a slight hit, with Stillman dropping to Jessup University 6-3. Jessup is the top seed in the NAIA Tournament.

Ivey Moreland led Stillman at the plate with two hits on three at-bats and two RBIs.

Stillman will now need to win two games Wednesday to reach Thursday's opening-round final.

Stillman (36-14) will meet Indiana University Southeast in an elimination game Wednesday at 2 p.m. The winner of that game will play again at 5 p.m. against the loser of Jessup and William Carey University.
