It's A Good Weekend For Softball, PT3

Congrats to UVA Men's Gold and Blue and Co-Rec Gold for making it to the semis . . . we spent most of the day following Co-Rec Blue power its way through to the quarterfinals, where they were defeated by a hungry team from Appalachian Law School.

Just because it's slow pitch doesn't mean you don't bring the heat...

Maryland's Team was first squad co-rec blue faced with some heavy hitters... men and ladies alike.

Luckily, Co-Rec blue had hitters of their own: here, a line drive brings in a run; UVA beat Maryland 13-4 to advance to the next round.

In the quarterfinals, Co-Rec Blue faced Appalachian. After a commanding first inning in which UVA lead 5-1, Appalachian knocked several home runs into left field to take lead. Around 50 people were watching - most of them rooting for Virginia.

Co-Rec Blue responded with some slugging of their own, and kept the game close even after some breakaway innings.

In the end the deficit proved to be too much: the teams congratulate one another for a good effort all around.
