“I came to the plate knowing this was my last at-bat at Jack Turner Softball Stadium here today and I said if the ball is over the plate I am hacking.”

 

The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs the national # 7 seed will travel to Oklahoma City and play in the Women’s College World Series which begins May 31 Thursday.

 

48-11 Lady Diamond Dawgs represent The SEC who are the dominant conference in softball 2018 as The SEC has the most wins in the 2018 NCAA Division I Softball Tournament.

 

Softball Georgia Lady Bulldogs were on ESPN Main Channel this afternoon Comcast # 846.

 

The tournament culminates with eight teams playing in the 2018 Women’s College World Series at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City.

 

Florida won in 2014 and in 2015 and Alabama won in 2012.    Texas A&M won 3 times none as members of The SEC.  And this is Georgia’s 4th trip to the Women’s College World Series.

 

Lu Harris-Champer our fantastic softball coach had us 3rd place in 2009 and in 2010 Lu Harris-Champer was 3rd place again but she has never been in the Championship Series between the last 2 remaining teams.

 

Lu Harris-Champer has a Women’s College World Series record with us at 5-6 so we have done very well.

 

We are in the UCLA bracket the # 3 seed and we are the # 7 seed.  UCLA in the Women’s College World Series has won 12 times an even dozen.

 

4 games on ESPN begin Thursday 31 May 2018 at 11 am 1:30 pm 6 pm and 8:30 pm.

 

 

 

 

Florida Gators are the # 2 seed nationally so we are to play Florida in the 1st Game of the 2018 College World Series.  We are the # 7 seed nationally.  Game 4 is 8:30 p.m. Thursday 31 May 2018.  Winner or loser bracket the next following game for us after 8:30 p.m. Thursday could be against UCLA # 3 seed 8:30 Friday night if that is the loser bracket and 8:30 Saturday night if that is the winner bracket.  Double-elimination Tournament now starting with the Women’s College World Series Softball 2018.

 

Senior Pitcher Brittany Gray and Senior Outfielder Cortni Emanuel were both just selected in the 2018 National Pro Fastpitch Draft as the 12th and 13th Georgia Bulldogs All-time who were drafted in the National Pro Fastpitch Draft all-time as part of MLB Major League Baseball.

 

Pitcher Brittany Gray is OUT FOR THE SEASON with injured biceps requiring surgery which she just injured just before the draft ending her career at 60 wins and 2.06 ERA.  You just have to pick her up.  There is nothing that can be done about surgery this late.

 

The SEC has 42 wins in the 2018 NCAA Softball Tournament and the Pac-12 has 27.  The Big XII has 9 wins.  The Big 10 has 8 wins while the ACC only has 6 wins this entire postseason.  SEC has 2 teams in the Women’s College World Series and both play each other in game 1.  The Pac-12 has 4 teams in the Women’s College World Series.  LSU plays Florida State 3 p.m. Sunday 5-27-2018 to determine the 8th and final team in the 2018 Women’s College World Series.  We are a LOT better in softball than we have been in baseball for quite some time now.
