Starting to feed itself yearly. Finding great kids.


It sounds like a lot of the success is attributed to pitching coach Piper Ritter. She was one of the most decorated pitchers in program history and has recruited and molded one pitching star after another.

I think the pitching dynamic changed drastically when they moved the pitching rubber back 5 feet. When they did that, you couldn't just have a Jenny Finch at 6'1" overpowering everybody.

Reason to hope today ... One of UCLA's few losses this year was to Michigan who just edged us out for the Big Ten tournament championship.

I counted 6. IMO there should be only one, but I get naming a first team staff rather than just a first team pitcher.

First game went extra innings. Our game being delayed I believe.
As I type this Arizona goes up 3-1. I live in AZ guess I should cheer for them until they play the Gophers.

Don't be sorry about that. Flagstaff is one of the most beautiful Towns/Cities in the nation.

Not looking good at all. UCLA has 3 hits already and it's still the second inning.

They're just setting it up for a dramatic series come back. It makes for a better story to come back and win it all from the losers' bracket. This will make a hell of a TV movie when all is said and done.

You give PA a run for his money.

Here's what was obvious. Amber Fiser just didn't have her usual command in the WS. The Washington game, she couldn't find the strike zone with anything but her fastball. When you get to that level, you're toast if your pitching is off because your hitters are also going to be facing All American caliber pitching. This isn't a knock on Fiser. She is the biggest reason the Gophers got to the series and I'm really glad she'll be back for 2020. It was just the worst possible time to be off.

I just wish they could have gotten a win or two for Maddie Houlihan. She was the heart and soul of Gopher softball for 4 years. It would have been nice to give to give her a better send off.

That's what it felt like to me as well
They weren't embarrassed, they simply needed to play better and didn't.
Great season that they should be able to build on.
