Get an inside look at the Stanford softball team each week. In this edition, freshman Cassandra Roulund talks about the team's trip to Utah and the NCAA selection show.
Hola Card family, friends, and fans!
My name is Cassandra (but you might know me as Boo) and I am a freshman outie! (For those of you not hip with the softball slang, "outie" means I play outfield).
This has been quite an exciting week for Stanford Softball. We travelled to the unfamiliar grounds of the University of Utah! It was a fun experience for everybody, including the seniors (Jenna Becerra, Maya Burns, and Ashley Hansen) because it was their last conference series ever. We ended up taking the series and we left Utah on a strong note. We headed to the airport and I didn't leave without making a pit stop with a few other girls to buy a carmel apple (yum!). Before I move on from Utah though, let me just say that it was absolutely gorgeous! The snow covered mountains were borderline majestic against the bright blue sky. We got to witness all of the beauty of 'winter Utah' with all of the weather of 'summer Utah'. (It might be a close second to our home here at Stanford).
If you ask anybody on our team, they'll tell you the same thing "the season flew by". It's crazy to think that three months ago we were just starting our first series in the Pac-12 and now we're heading into postseason! Speaking of postseason, the selection show was on Sunday! I hope you all tuned in, but for those of you who didn't, Stanford Softball will be heading to Louisiana! Personally, I'm pretty excited to be playing in a new place. Our first game is against Baylor and we could not be more prepared. We have worked so hard all year for this exact moment. Now it's time to show up and play how we know how to!
