NCAA says softball committee will welcome feedback following WCWS complaints
The softball committee will "solicit feedback" following issues with scheduling at the Women's College World...
Oklahoma beat UCLA 10-3 on Saturday night to keep the team’s Women’s College World Series hopes alive.
The two teams were favorites to make it to the championship series. Instead, they found themselves in a sudden-death matchup after James Madison upset Oklahoma and Alabama bested UCLA.
The Bruins took an early 3-0 lead, but as the Oklahoma offense started to heat up, that advantage quickly slipped away. Once the No.1 Sooners got going, there was no looking back in their commanding 10-3 victory.
Saturday night’s game marked the end of UCLA pitcher Rachel Garcia’s storied collegiate career. Garcia — an Olympian, two-time National Player of the Year and national champion — is considered one of the best ever to wear a Bruins jersey.
