We're looking forward to the super regional
It's finally coming together and we are almost there. This was such an incredible weekend for Sun Devils softball. Dallas Escobedo was absolutely lights out in the circle. Her confidence within herself and within the team is what is going to take us all the way to Oklahoma City. Catching her this weekend, I saw a focus and mental toughness that has not been there all season.
While we are not swinging the bats as well as we can, she is putting us on her back. Dallas and I have found a certain connection and I think we are a dynamic battery. She is so much fun to catch and I enjoy every moment of it. She makes every pitch exciting.
This weekend was such a blast. Postseason brings out emotions in me that I never knew I had. I cannot wait to play in the NCAA super regional against Kentucky. For our team, there is no day off this week. We are extremely happy with the way we played this weekend, but we have to go back to work. Monday, we get back on the field -- working on our swings, fielding groundballs and catching fly balls. We will also start watching film on Kentucky's pitchers and get familiar with their tendencies.
Our team will not be satisfied with anything less than a national championship. We just need two more wins to take us back to the big stage in OKC. I can't wait to play next weekend, but I know we still have work to do. This is a hungry team that will do whatever it takes to get back there. Our motto this entire year has been "two more days" because as you all know we lost in the semifinals last year. We're still going to take one game at a time and not look too far ahead.
See you all next weekend. Go Devils!
