What a week! Like always, the SEC tournament didn't disappoint. The crowds were great in Tuscaloosa and it was an atmosphere comparable to the Women's College World Series. Our team played great in Game 1 against Kentucky and again in Game 2 against Alabama. Anyone who has played in T-town knows it is always tough to beat the Tide, but I'm so proud of the heart and fight we showed [Georgia lost 1-0]. Again, we had a stellar performance from our pitcher, Erin Arevalo, and to out hit such a strong Alabama team gives us nothing but confidence going into regionals next weekend.
The conference tournament is over and the road to Oklahoma City starts this week. As we await the highly anticipated selection show Sunday, we all have one thing on our minds: let's play ball and leave no room for regrets. Our team loves the big crowd, the lights and the big moment. This truly is the best part of the season.
The scene on the bus this time of year is a bit different than a few months ago. We traded in our textbooks and calculators for movies and Draw Something competitions. With classes over, we can all take a breather and play the game we love.
I'm excited to see how the postseason shapes up and how our team responds to the challenge. To play in the postseason is something we all dream about growing up as softball players. We are blessed to have this opportunity and it's time to start living the dream. Our team motto this year is "strong heart, tough mind," and to get us back to Oklahoma City, we will need both of those factors.
Whelp, that's it for this one. We and other teams across the nation await our fate Sunday! To all the mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day and thanks for all you do!
As always ... GOOO DAWGS!
