Day Four With the Niners at the Atlantic 10 Championships

Have you ever been at the top of the universe one minute and about two minutes later you are as down as down can be? That’s how today felt against UMass. We loaded the bases and really had Balschmiter reeling in the sixth, but we couldn’t drive a run in. But I thought, oh well, we’ll get them in the seventh. Well UMass had different plans as they took two pitches out of the park and changed the game before beating us 2-0.

I was thinking, we are going to beat a ranked team in the conference tournament and be unbeaten heading to the title game. But it just wasn’t meant to be.

The girls know they are so close to beating UMass, they can feel it and I know I can feel it.
We didn’t do anything extra special today, it was a gameday and the team was all business.
Tomorrow is a new day for the Niners. We play Saint Joe’s at 12:00 noon before hopefully earning a rematch with the Minutewomen at 2:00.

It’s a long trek now for a conference championship, but the Niners can do it. This team is still hungry and the senior class surely isn’t content. The underclassmen surely don’t want to send the most successful class in school history off without a conference title.

Until tomorrow, go ahead and do the norm: Wear green and go Niners!
