Hi Card Fans!
I cannot believe the season is already here!
If you have been unable to follow us thus far, we have kicked off the 2012 season with a bang! With fire and drive, we as a team look forward to the uphill climb the season will place before us. With each step we look to improve and prepare for the ultimate goal - the postseason!
We opened our season, bats hot, at the Kajikawa Classic in Arizona. We went 4-1 on the weekend, scoring an astounding 48 runs!
This past weekend we hosted the Stanford Nike Invitational, marking week two of our journey towards Oklahoma City. Starting the weekend off strong, we opened Friday afternoon with wins over Pacific and Bradley. Heading into Saturday, we ran into a little bump against Nevada, but redeemed ourselves in the double-header, pulling through with an 8-2 win in game two. Resembling that of tournament play, we found ourselves in the championship game Sunday, defeating Bradley 3-0.
We are very excited for this season! With the display of team chemistry, talent, and determination demonstrated so far, nothing will stop us! This upcoming weekend we will be facing tough opponents in the Cathedral City Classic. Please join us on our journey toward reaching the Women's College World Series!
