Your Kentucky Wildcats softball team has punched their ticket to the NCAA Tournament.
Kentucky finished their season with a choppy 6-7 record and a first-round loss in the SEC Tournament to Florida, leading to a missed opportunity of hosting the regional round in Lexington.
Instead, Kentucky will travel to Blacksburg, Virginia along with Miami (Ohio) and St. Francis (Pennsylvania) where Virginia Tech will play host for the opening round.
Led by veteran head coach Rachel Lawson, the Lady Wildcats have made the NCAA Tournament each of the past 13 seasons (2020 tournament was cancelled due to COVID-19) dating back to 2009. Kentucky has advanced to the Super Regional in eight of those postseasons and fallen short of the Women’s College World Series.

Despite speculation from media about my future this fall, I’m currently undecided. I may work for NBC, I may play football again, I may focus on business and philanthropy, I may train for the pickleball tour, senior golf tour, coach my kids or all of the above. I’ll let you know— Drew Brees (@drewbrees) May 15, 2022

This one still hurts.
Their postseason hopes remain alive.
It’s been a major offseason for the Lady Wildcats.
This was... impressive.
Love the comparison.
Such an epic Sunday of playoff basketball.
Heck of a start to her rookie season.
GM Zach Kleiman with a smart decision.
