Pac-10 Super Six: Softball Super Regional Continues Sunday
May 24, 2009
With four teams sweeping their regional competition, all six Pac-10 teams qualifying for postseason move on to the round of 16. The Conference's six teams are the most in a Super Regional since all seven Pac-10 advanced to the Sweet 16 in 2006. That season, Arizona, the No. 2 seed overall, won the NCAA title for the seventh time in program history.
The six teams from the Pac-10 are the most of any conference competing in the Super Regionals. The SEC, who led the initial field of teams qualifying for the NCAA tournament with nine, advances three schools: Florida, Alabama and Georgia.
