Big Day for the Ladies

Softball sails past Cal

Alisa Goler hit her 15th home run of the season, and Sarah McCloud was dominant on the mound as Georgia topped California 7-0 in the opening game of the Athens Super Regional on Friday.

McCloud pitched a complete game, striking out three and allowing just four hits over seven innings, upping her record to 12-1 for the season.

Goler and catcher Kristyn Sandberg paced the offense. Goler was 2-for-2 with a home run, while Sandberg finished 2-for-3 with two RBI and her sixth homer of the season.

"We've had a lot of great games this year, but this win is up there with our best,” Goler said. “We just need to keep taking advantage of the situations that are given to us and keep fighting out there."

Dawgs’ Duo Advances

Georgia sophomores Chelsey Gullickson and Nadja Gilchrist advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship with a three-set victory over the 12th-ranked tandem of Karen Nijssen and Kristi Boxx from Mississippi on Friday.

After losing the opening set, Gullickson and Gilchrist sailed through the final two sets to win 1-6, 6-3, 6-4.

“We tried to keep it light when we talked to Chelsey and Nadja after (the first set), telling them to hang in there and keep fighting,” coach Jeff Wallace said. “They have matured, and it would’ve been easy for them to just go away, but they didn’t. They turned it around and played well at the end.”

Its good to see the women picking up the men's slack. Football, basketball, and baseball finished Indepence Bowl, last, and last.

I'm no softball connoisseur, but one thing I learned while watching the WCWS last year is that there's no mound. The pitcher is "in the circle".
