In honor of opening weekend for @ncaasoftball & @arizonasoftball 🥎 One of THEE BEST moments I’ve had the honor and privilege to be part of! Winning the National Championship with my Wildcat sister’s! 🏆 We trained fiercely, attempted to perfect every detail EVERYDAY, called each other out when needed, pushed each other beyond our limits, and looked each other in the eye knowing we were giving it our everything. All the hours, blood, sweat, tears, sacrifices, failures, facing tough moments together (burying our differences), putting team first, navigating through it ALL together- made that moment all that it was! 🔥 Our motto that year was “Win The Last Game.” Basically, we didn’t want a motto, we had, had enough of mottos- we just wanted to WIN period and be sure to WIN the last game we played! We did it, we were the last team standing that year! ❤️ Coach always says, you need to be firing on all cylinders, peaking at the right time, & have a little luck to win it all. When he says luck, we all know he means -you work so dang hard that luck finds you. 😻 It took every single one of us to win! Together we did it, together we’re better! Soak up every pitch, keep competing, keep believing, lean in, bring your “A” game daily, & keep that train moving all the way to OKC! And always #BearDown ❤️ Which team are you looking forward to seeing back out on the field this season? Comment Below⬇️
