Lady Vols Confident Heading Into College World Series
The Lady Vols softball team will make their sixth career appearance in the College World Series on Thursday.
Tennessee opens up play in Oklahoma City against SEC rival Florida at 2:30pm. The Lady Vols have never won the national title. But this year, UT hopes their experience and depth might mean the championship trophy will be coming back to Knoxville. Said coach Karen Weekly,"This team is really well-balanced. Past teams may have been heavy in pitching and maybe heavy on offense and not have the pitching depth. This team has a little bit of everything." Added infielder Raven Chavanne,"I think we can stay calm in that atmosphere. It's such a crazy atmosphere. It's something the freshmen have no clue what it's going to be like until you actually get there. So I think having a majority of the team having been in that situation can really benefit us in not getting too overwhelmed."
