Last weekend the NCAA Women’s Division 1 softball regional tournaments took place throughout the country. I was really excited to learn that the University of Oregon’s softball team is ranked #1 in the country and were hosting a regional tournament in Eugene. I headed down Saturday for a great day of college softball. The first game featured the Oregon Ducks taking on the Wisconsin in a winners bracket game. The Ducks treated their hometown crowd to a really fun 6-1 win over the Badgers. Even as an Oregon State fan, I had a ton of fun cheering a Pac-12 team.
The second and third games of the day were elimination games. They were really fun to watch especially since the competition to stay in the tournament was intense. Utah Valley was sent home by Albany after the second game (4-3) and Albany was eliminated by Wisconsin in the third game (8-4). It’s been a really long time since I got to watch softball so I drank it all in!
