“This team is gritty,” said junior first baseman Lacey Fincher, who had two hits Saturday, including a double. “The Georgia Bulldogs are the definition of grit. We have players like Mary Wilson, who is just a baller who goes out there every day and gives us her all. Ellie Armistead, one of our freshmen, is such a good player and a good human and a beautiful person to have on your team who loves the game of softball. I just can’t wait to see what these team has for the future.”

I have so much pride for this program, all that it stands for, and the women that have built it. Today truly is a dream come true. I am humbled and so very honored to represent them as their head coach. (Source:
