3/17 Softball Bracketology Breakdown

California College Softball

Last Four In: Illinois, Iowa State, East Carolina, Florida International

First Four Out: North Carolina, South Carolina, Hofstra, North Carolina State

Thanks to superb play by Mysha Sataraka and a walk-off grand slam by Grice Goulder, the Pac-12 got off to a thrilling start. The Bruins won their first two conference games against Arizona. If that is any indication of what we can expect from the conference, we are in for another great season out West. Cal got a much needed series win and Oregon State surprised Arizona State by taking two out of three over the weekend.
