• Jerod Young @FishDuck.com notes it has been quite some time since the softball team has made it to the College World Series.
Now that the rough series against the Longhorns is behind them, Oregon must prepare for a much bumpier ride to face a familiar foe, joining the other seven Super Regional advancing teams for the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City, starting in just two days.
Oregon’s first round opponent will be fellow Pac-12 squad Arizona State, the #3 seed and returning NCAA champion.
