Stanford down and out of Super Regional

Original post made on May 22, 2009

The Stanford softball team didn't lose at home very often. The only teams which did it this year have combined for 19 of the 27 Women's College World Series championships. UCLA's victory ended a long winning streak. Arizona's doubleheader win ended Stanford's dreams. The Wildcats won twice, 7-3 and 6-5, on Friday night to capture the NCAA Super Regional at Stanford and advance to the WCWS in Oklahoma City.

Congrats to the Stanford Cardinal softball team for an amazing season. It would have been an honor to see them in the College World Series.

I second LD's comments. Arizona and Stanford never should have been paired against each other in the Supers. How do they come up with 8 & 9 seeds for these two teams? Stanford belongs in the World Series alongside Arizona. They both are among the nation's top 8.
