UT Martin's season ends in loss to Georgia Tech
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – UT Martin sophomore Kayla Wade knew she had to get to Georgia Tech catcher Alysha Rudnik’s feet before the ball did.
Wade scored from first base on senior Jenny Bain’s double to center field and The University of Tennessee at Martin tied the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the third inning.
“I was running my heart out,” Wade said. “When Jenny Bain hit that ball I knew it was in the gap, and I was going home. I knew that I had to run my fastest.”
However, Wade’s run was all the Skyhawks could put on the scoreboard against Georgia Tech in the NCAA Regional Softball Tournament at Rhoads Stadium on the Alabama campus.
Georgia Tech claimed a 9-1 victory and advanced to the semifinals of the tournament against South Alabama. UT Martin finished the season with a 39-22 record.
“I don’t think the score is indicative of the way the game was played.” UT Martin head coach Donley Canary said. “We are proud of our kids. They played hard; they left it all on the ball field.”
