Mississippi State Softball Player loses battle with ovarian cancer

MSU’s Alex Wilcox, a member of the softball team, passed away today, Monday June 25th, after fighting ovarian cancer.

Wilcox had united her team, the Bulldog family and the sports community at large.

Earlier in the season, Wilcox recorded her first collegiate hit and was active on the team during treatment.

In a Game against Central Arkansas this season, all of the Central Arkansas players wore the name ‘Wilcox’ on their jersey then auctioned off the jerseys to help support Alex’s medical bills.
