Sunday was the mother of all NCAA women's softball games (if there is such a thing) when No. 1 Alabama hit the road to Knoxville to play the No. 2 Lady Vols. With UT sweeping Bama in a double header, the Lady Vols were able to clinch the regular season SEC championship! The wins also guaranteed the ladies the #1 seed in the SEC tourney that kicks off next weekend at Auburn.
Several records were broken Saturday, including single-game attendance (1,836) and Senior pitcher Monica Abbott overtaking Cat Osterman as the all-time NCAA D-I Strikeout leader with 2,271. The Lady Vols finish the regular season with a 53-4 (23-4 SEC) record.
Congrats to Monica and the rest of the Lady Vols Softball team!
