Well….unfortunately the Bama Womens #1 ranked Softball team was upset at home in the Super Regional round of the NCAA tournament. It was a huge surprise, but Hawaii’s huge hitting sealed the fate of the once dominant Lady Tide. However, the Powerhouse SEC still did land 3 teams in the field of 8 who will play for the Womens College World Series (Tennessee, Florida, Georgia).
In related news, the SEC Baseball tournament was awesome, especially for people like me who like both LSU and Alabama. The Tide and Tigers both rolled through the tournament with 3-0 records to meet in a classic title game match. It was a classic. With loud a raucous crowd, multiple weather delays, and an electrifying and exciting 11 inning game, the Tide finally prevailed 4-3 in an extra-inning classic!! Both teams entered the tournament hot and both leave the tourment on fire and ready for the NCAA Tournament.
(that is actually an old picture, but it works)
Alabama and LSU joing 6 other SEC teams in the NCAA tournment, and Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, and South Carolina were chosen as hosts for the regional rounds. No intelligent person would be shocked to see several of these teams advance deep into the tournament. Its what the SEC does–they win games and win championships. Just ask LSU and their 7 national titles.
If you would like to see the SEC add to their their trophy cases, get your NCAA baseball tickets today! Or, to put it another way, if you would like to see northern teams (i.e. Big Ten) teams get their butts whipped, get those today too!
