Boy am I excited about writing this blog!
Because Michigan Softball is going to the WORLD SERIES!!! OKC BOUND!!!
Let’s talk about the games today!
First game we were beat but that wasn’t going to stop us. We had 3o minutes to come back and be ready to play! We were determined and put our lives on the line. It was our seniors last game on Alumni Field no matter what and we were ready!!
I was suppose to start, but a small injury happened and Sara started. Sara has been doing such an amazing job this season, with all the troubles I have faced, and I couldn’t be any more proud of her. She is outstanding and one of my best friends! Were down 1-0 in the 4th but we came back in the 6th! Sierra Romero got HBP and Caitlin Blanchard gets a single and advances Romero to third! Next up Ashley Lane Again!!!! She does it again!!! Shot to left center! Brings home Romero, and Blanchard scores from First!! 2-0 Michigan!! We finish it off in the 7th and the last out to Romero and out number three! Michigan Softball advances to the World Series!!! WOOOHOOO!!!!!!!!!!
So this blog is all about the NCAA tournament and how Michigan Softball is doing! Well right now we are awesome! We have one goal each game and we are at our final step! We are going to OKC and it is seriously a moment that you cannot put into words. The excitement that everyone had when we got that final out. All of our hard work paid off. Our seniors were going to OKC for the first time, and Michigan Softball is going for the first time in 4 years! Our dreams are coming true. And that fact that I can still see Amy Knapp’s face when we got that out, how she just fell to the floor crying and the entire team was on top of her. I was right next to her and she couldn’t stop crying. I love Team 36 with all my heart and I cannot wait to practice Tuesday and head to Oklahoma City! We have the heart and desire and we never give up. We are not done yet! And we are so pumped!!
We are ready to go and just want to play again! So excited for OKC and I will keep you updated!!!
