On to super regionals we go! As if my team needed any extra motivation to get this regional weekend done in three straight wins, it was a hot one in Norman. The fans were on full blast in the dugout, and the rosin bags got worn out. I am so grateful to our fans who stuck through it all weekend to support us.
It is so fun to be a pitcher on this team. I say this because my teammates put 41 runs up on the board this weekend. We did not score less than 10 in a game -- talk about run support.
After beating Marist on Friday night, we saw Arkansas on Saturday and Sunday. We knew they were tough and could swing the bat well. After a close game Saturday that we ended up winning 10-5, we came out firing on all cylinders Sunday. We won 14-1, and my teammates got three curtains calls from our fans!
I don't think that has ever happened at Marita Hynes Field since I've been here. Hearing our fans chanting “Lauren [Chamberlain],” “Shelby [Pendley]” and “Javen [Henson]” after each hit a home run was amazing and even gave me goose bumps. That is what the postseason is all about.
Our super regional starts Thursday and our old conference mate, Texas A&M, is coming to town. We will use our time this week to rest our bodies and prepare for the next challenge.
Keep following us as our journey continues. Boomer Sooner!
