Alabama takes game one of Tuscaloosa Super Regional with 2-1 victory over Washington

Sophomore Demi Turner missed 28 games this season due to injury. Prior to postseason play, Turner hadn't taken the field since March 12 against LSU, but on Friday night, Turner showed up when the Crimson Tide needed her. Turner's RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning against the Washington Huskies lifted the Crimson Tide to a 2-1 win in the first game of a best-of-three Super Regional series.


Dare drives in 4 as softball evens Kentucky series with 7-1 win

Chandler Dare went 2 for 4 with four RBIs as No. 4 Alabama softball beat No. 11 Kentucky 7-1 to even the series.  The junior utility player singled in two runs in the bottom of the fourth and another two in the bottom of the sixth with the bases loaded.  “Anytime it’s bases loaded you have to have the mentality of I want to be up there, I want to be up there, so I think there were four batters in front of me that inning,” Dare said.
