Georgia Lady Diamond Dawgs
- 12-0 to start 2017 season

- 11-0 to start 2014 season
4th season in a row Georgia Softball has started-out at least 11-0 to begin each season culminating with our Opening Game WIN in the Women’s College World Series last season 2016.
There are great expectations for this season with us adding 2 of the top 100 softball players in the nation this off-season to bolster our already potent attack and top-notch pitching.
With 246 Division 1 Softball Teams and rosters of 25 players there are 5000 top softball players in our Division alone and the other smaller divisions also play great collegiate softball. With Title IX every college in the nation fields softball teams.
We just play Softball at a higher level than all but the elite of the elite and frankly could win the Women’s College World Series which we have come-in 3rd place several times.
If you want to root for Georgia in an exciting sport in which we actually do well this is it.
Lu Harris-Champer is doing a AMAZINGLY GREAT JOB as our Softball Head Coach.
