We realized we didn’t have any seniors early. We’ve all stepped up, and found our role within the team, and everyone has come together to become one unit. We don’t really focus on not having seniors. We just work with what we have, and I think we have a great group of girls who are very talented. Each person has their role, and does it very well.
Yet another year in #UGA athletics where it's women who are dominating in the postseason & contending for championships. Hmm...
In addition to earning a spot in the WCWS in Oklahoma City, June 3-9, Saturday's victory also marked the 500th win at Georgia for head coach Lu Harris-Champer, who's overall collegiate coaching career record now stands at 709-243-1 over 14 seasons including a 500-179 record in 10 seasons at UGA. . . .
Georgia's opening game of the WCWS will come against Washington on Thursday at a time to be determined. Last year, Georgia and Washington played each other three times at the WCWS with UGA earning the only win over Washington prior to the Huskies winning the 2009 National Title.
Nine months ago, the SEC and ESPN agreed on a $2.25 billion media deal that seemed to promise coverage of just about anything donning the conference seal.
Nine months in, the deal has underperformed. . . .
In the deal, sweeteners thrown in included additional coverage for Olympic sports such as baseball, softball (which, oddly, will not be played in the 2012 Olympics), gymnastics and volleyball.
Even if such coverage was promised — and even if such coverage was aired somewhere across the ESPN universe — has anybody noticed? . . .
By the time you get down to watching games live on ESPN Classic, something doesn’t feel right. . . .
But in the other areas, what has the deal done? What about the Olympic sports?
