Wednesday was a tough day for the Fresno State softball team. One of its own, Kelcey Carrasco, lost her father in a car accident.
On Friday, the Bulldogs open play in the prestigious Judi Garman Classic. That tournament, held in Fullerton, typically brings in the best teams in the country each year. Fresno State is scheduled to play five teams in Fullerton, two of whom are ranked second (Washington) and third (Texas) in the country.
“I think it’s a great opportunity,” says head coach Linda Garza. “Obviously we get to play some of the top teams in the country that I’m truly, when looking over on paper and things like that, they’re definitely teams that could be in the Women’s College World Series. So it’s a great test for us.”
Added senior infielder Haley Fuller, “We’re so excited. I think it’s awesome, personally…our team looks awesome, we’re having a great season. So why not put it to them this weekend?”
