The Kentucky softball team has been to the postseason each of the last four seasons and doesn't expect that to change in 2013.
LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky softball coach Rachel Lawson said during team's media day on Monday that the goals for the program remain the same - high.
“Two years ago, we were one game away from the World Series, so for us there’s really only one place to go which is the World Series. Like other teams at Kentucky, we want to win the SEC Championship, but it’s actually a lot harder to win the SEC Championship than it would be to go to the World Series, as is proven by how many SEC teams go to the World Series. I think those are our two ultimate goals," Lawson said.
"Where I think we are, we’ve made it to four straight postseasons and if I would’ve made a different decision that one day, I think we would’ve been in the World Series already. I think we’re certainly up there and I think we can do it again. I just think that right now, at the beginning of the season, we can schedule really hard games right off the get go to see where we’re at. From there, I think we can really come up with a good game plan and assuming we keep our confidence up and our wits about us, I think we’ll be right there in the postseason again, knocking on the door for the World Series.”
