The team didn't get back to the hotel until about 1:00 a.m. Central Time last night. So, after getting some rest, the Huskies were back at it again this morning. After lunch, the team headed to Independence Park, a nearby city field, for about an hour's worth of batting practice. As there's no official practice time at ASA Softball Hall of Fame Stadium, this was arranged by the team on its own.
Check out this photo gallery from today's practice.
Temperatures were in the low to mid-90s and the session lasted roughly an hour and a half. Back to the hotel afterwards and then the team will head to dinner this early evening.
Two games are on tap in the Women's College World Series Friday as winners' bracket games feature UCLA vs. Hawai'i and Tennessee vs. Georgia.
