We’re pumped for super regionals

By Ashley Pauly

Supers here we come! It feels good to say after this weekend we are one step closer to our goal. We were able to come out of our regional 3-0 and played some great teams along the way. It’s surreal, but I have officially played my last home game at Jack Turner Softball Stadium. On the plus side, I can say I was able to win my last collegiate home game. All the credit goes to my awesome teammates that showed heart and so much grit during regional play. I couldn’t be more proud of this team and the things we have been able to accomplish thus far in our season.

It’s back to the grind this week as we prepare to take on Tennessee. It will be like our regular-season SEC series matchup only this one is on steroids! The stakes are higher, and one team will be packing its bags for Oklahoma City.

Tennessee is a great team with a history of being highly competitive in postseason. During regular season we split with them, so I know this weekend will be a Dawg fight for sure. We know we have our work cut out for us this week, but we love the challenge. The team is excited to get back to work and start preparing for our opponent.

We’ll head up to good ole’ “Rocky Top” sometime Thursday after practice. It’s not too long of a trip up to Knoxville but just long enough to spend some time with the team on the bus and do what we do best: watch movies! I’ll write again Friday with all the juicy details of traveling with the team. Until next time, everyone have a great week and Go Dawgs!
