Huskers softball team begins play in Women's College World Series

Much has changed at the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City since the Huskers made their last trip there 11 years ago.

While all eight teams took the field at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium, the ESPN TV crew scattered about with tools and ladders, setting up the place for four games Thursday starting with the Huskers against Washington at 11 AM. Rhonda Revelle, in her 22nd year as the Huskers head coach, doesn’t remember this kind of atmosphere when the Huskers played in the Women’s College World Series 11 years ago. "The sellout.  The expanded stadium.  The frenzy of selling merchandise.  I can’t think of too many things that are really similar other than the game." If the 14th seeded Huskers, the lowest remaining seed in the field, defeat Washington, they’ll play again Friday night.  A Washington victory would send the Huskers into the elimination bracket, which will be held on Saturday. The Washington Huskies are seeded 11th.
