Straight from the dugout:
Head Coach Yvette Healy
"It was a fun day for the Badgers to come out here to Arizona State and see some of the best competition. I am really proud of the fight that we had. We played Texas tough yesterday and I think everybody wanted more out of the day. When you get big ranked wins it's great, but it's an even bigger deal when it's a bounce-back win and when you get an effort from everyone.

"We had people up and down the lineup hitting. All the pitchers contributed. It was good to see so many arms be that effective. It was such a great team win, I couldn't be more proud

The closed out the weekend 4-1 with a win over Princeton.
