ETBU softball ready for college world series

By Ryan Peterson - bio | email

MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) -    The ETBU softball team has had very little time to celebrate their first ever trip to the College World Series.  After winning their regional Monday in Louisiana, the team had a long bus ride back to East Texas.  Now they have to drive to Shreveport for a Wednesday morning flight to Dallas.  From Dallas, they'll head to the national tournament in Wisconsin.

"It really hasn't hit me yet," said senior Porsha Harrison.  "But when I go on our ETBU website and I see that we're on the front page and it's pictures and pictures and that's all it's talking about, I'm just like wow."

Starting pitcher Ayrika Henderson says the experience is like a dream.  The Lady Tiger haven't let the moment sink in.

"We haven't had time to just sit down and even think about it," said senior Adrienne Meier.  "I think the plane ride up there will give us some time and maybe Thursday before we play it will start to sink in."

ETBU will enter the World Series this weekend as the No. 1 seed at the tournament, and will play Moravian at 6:30 p.m. on Friday in Eau Claire.
