Big Friday

The softball team takes on Northwestern this afternoon at 4pm, the game will be on ESPN2. The Huskies play their second game in a row against a Chicago area team. The Wildcats are one of the top seeds in the tournament, and dispatched Arizona yesterday.

The Northwestern team (51-11) that Washington faces today is sixth-ranked (Washington is No. 11), went to the WCWS final a year ago and features the two-time Big Ten pitcher of the year in 6-foot Eileen Canney, who shut down Arizona State on one hit.

The Husky Crew advanced to todays Semifinals which kick off at 9:00 AM PST. The Huskies expect to be challenged in this one by Cornell, and Stanford. Cornell was a surprise victor in their heat yesterday.

Michigan
Princeton
Washington
Cornell
Stanford
Northeastern

The Finals will be on Saturday, and everyone is expecting a showdown with Harvard which had yesterdays second fastest time. Don't count out California either who has raced the Huskies close all season.

Both the softball and crew race will be tough. While i like our chances in both, we are at that level of competition where it doesn't take much to win or lose. Will be watching softball again at 4pm today.
