We Are the Champions!

Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2007 at 10:41 AM

The UA softball team fought back after losing the first game of the Women’s College World Series, defeating the Lady Vols of Tennessee on both Tuesday and Wednesday to win the crown. Tuesday's game was a nailbiter of a pitcher’s duel that went 10 innings before Danielle Rodriguez squeezed across the plate just ahead of the tag on a sac fly by Adrienne Acton. In last night’s game, the Cats unloaded with a five-run fifth inning capped by Chelsie Mesa’s three-run homer.

The series featured an amazing pitching performance by junior pitcher Taryne Mowatt, who pitched every single inning of the Wildcats’ post-season. How’s this for astonishing: Mowatt, who set a record with 42 wins this season (suck on that, Big Unit!), threw more 1,000 pitches over eight games in six days.

Congrats, Wildcats!
