With No. 2 Alabama seeking to become the first SEC team to win a softball national championship and No. 4 Oklahoma seeking to become just the fifth school with multiple national championships, let's look at how the series breaks down in key areas.
This past weekend was a great start to our journey in the postseason. Playing at home is always an honor, and allows you to keep the routine that you are used to. It is so much fun playing in front of our home crowd, and they were just as much a part of the victories last weekend as the team.
This past weekend was Mother’s Day, and although I could not spend the day with my mom, I am just so blessed for everything she has done for me. She has always allowed me to pursue my dreams, whatever it may be.
Last weekend was probably one of the hardest weekends this season by far. We battled hard against Texas for three straight games. Not getting the final result we wanted in the game on Sunday really stung, but watching our seniors (Allee Allen, Kirsten Allen, Katie Norris) play their last home game was really emotional.
It is crazy to think this year is almost over. It feels like the season has just started. When you have a team with chemistry like ours, it makes every day fly by. There is not a single day I dread going to practice or dread being around my team.
