2010 World Series

For the fourth time in program history, Tennessee earned its way to Oklahoma City for the Women's College World Series and for the fourth time in the last six seasons, UT secured a top three national finish. After a spirited run through both NCAA Regionals and Super Regionals as the nation's No. 15 seed, including a two-game sweep at No. 2 Michigan, the Big Orange opened its stay at the WCWS with a 9-0 (5 inn.) rout of eventual national finalist No. 3 Arizona and then bested Southeastern Conference rival No. 9 Georgia, 7-5, to reach the semifinal round. Unfortunately, needing just one victory to reach the best-of-three WCWS Championship Series, UT suffered back-to-back losses to the Wildcats to complete its magical year at No. 3 in the national rankings and with a 49-15 overall record.

Tennessee softball's first-ever trip to the Women's College World Series was just about everything that the squad and co-head coaches Ralph and Karen Weekly could have desired. Stirring victories over No. 3 Arizona, No. 8 Alabama and No. 1 and eventual national champion Michigan, along with late-inning heroics, national television coverage and big-game experience on the largest national stage in softball made UT's visit to Oklahoma City, Okla., a truly memorable one. In the end, the Lady Vols finished third, coming up just short of a berth in the NCAA Championship series.
