Kentucky Wins Game One To Advance to the Winners Bracket
This weekend I am in South Bend, Indiana covering the NCAA softball tournament for the Kentucky Wildcats. They have been great to work with, and they have provided me with plenty of opportunities for some interesting photos. As with any tournament game they were very excited with every run, and I tried to capture that. They had a 2-0 lead only to end up down 4-2. Junior Nikki Sagermann hit a two run home run in the fifth inning to tie the game up. In the bottom of the sixth the Wildcats took the lead when Rachael Metzger hit a single to score the winning run. Metzger is a true freshman, and it was her first NCAA at bat. Not a bad start for her. Kentucky survived a bases loaded jam in the bottom of the inning to advance in the winners bracket to face the Ball State at noon today.
As usual here are a few extra photos from the day that I liked. The full gallery can be found on Kentucky’s website here .
