Hearty congratulations to the UW Softball team, who beat the Florida Gators and captured the NCAA National Championship. The victory was also noticed in Olympia where Governor Gregoire issued the following statement:
“I am incredibly proud of our Washington women for their victory. The excellence, determination, and passion they have demonstrated are truly outstanding. It is exciting to see such success enjoyed by students from my Alma Mater. Their record-setting performances and confident ability to upset a top-ranked team are truly commendable.”
“With USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year Danielle Lawrie, a new record for hits in a single-season set by Ashley Charters, and a record-setting number of World Series doubles by Morgan Stuart, the Huskies have good reason to celebrate. And I proudly celebrate with them!”
Bow Down to Washington, indeed!
