OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kimi Pohlman raced home on a squibber back
to the circle that Florida ace Stacey Nelson couldn't handle,
giving Washington the decisive run in a 3-2 victory for its first
NCAA softball championship Tuesday night.
With the bases loaded in the third inning, Morgan Stuart tapped
the ball a few feet in front of home plate, but Nelson (41-5) was
unable to scoop it cleanly. That allowed the go-ahead run to score.
National player of the year Danielle Lawrie (42-8) shut out the
top-seeded Gators (63-5) the rest of the way to clinch the title.
Washington (51-12) kept the championship in the Pac-10 by
keeping Florida from bringing the Southeastern Conference its first
title. The Pac-10 has won 21 of the 27 Women's College World Series
