The end of the road
As any of you who got to see the game in person or on ESPN today already know, Cal didn't not bow down to the Gators. The girls battled to the end against one of the top teams in the nation, something they have done many, many times this season. This time, however, they just got some unlucky breaks and things didn't quite go their way. It really was a fantastic and exciting series, though the outcome was sad, yet encouraging. This is a young, hungry team that will be back again next year, even more road tested and wanting even more to make it to the Women's College World Series. I am excited about the future. The coaches are excited about the future. The team is excited about the future.
There wasn't sadness after the game today. A lot of fatigue, but no sadness. The girls knew what they put into that game, and they walk away from Florida with their heads held high and a Go Bears! on their lips.
We will be back. Go Bears!
