I couldn't say enough about her. Dodd's at her best at end of the year, when the games matter the most.
I know it's good for softball to see a team other than UCLA win the championship,
She held her composure out there and she got out of it. (Selden) did a great job for us out there today.
Andrea is our team leader in every sense of the word. She has great character, is a great performer and loves the game. Her performance this past weekend proves how special a talent she is.
What Ashley did wasn't only a momentum changer. It was more than that, considering what teams normally expect out of that spot in the order.
Our bottom of the order was responsible for our championships the last two years. Historically, this year's bottom of the order is doing what UCLA teams always do.
It's very simple to explain the payoff. This team is trusting their plan through entire games. They're staying within themselves whether they have the advantage in the count or not.
You can try as a coach to instill confidence in a team. But this team doesn't need it. They've lived it. They have all the confidence they need.
I'm so proud of this team. They knew there was still a lot of softball to be played and they've been through so much this year and built confidence in themselves.
I know they don't get the attention, but they're critical to our team.
