In case you haven’t been paying attention, the UK women’s softball team is making some late season noise. Earlier this afternoon, the Wildcats beat Illinois 4-2 to advance to the Super Regional round, which is the equivalent to the Sweet 16 round in college basketball.
The Cats have been given the #14 seed out of 16 teams and will be traveling out to the West Coast to take on the #3 seeded Oregon Ducks in Eugene. Oregon beat out Wisconsin in their Regional round with a 9-0 rout of the Badgers.
CONFIRMED – Kentucky will make the cross-country trip to face the third-seeded Oregon Ducks in Eugene for the Super Regional round. pic.twitter.com/b3InNAkGVC
