Diane Ninemire has her Golden Bears clicking; they went undefeated in their regional, sweeping Bucknell, Kentucky and Ohio State in Columbus, not even allowing a run to move one step closer to the Women's College World Series. Starting pitching dominated, led by Jolene Henderson and Valerie Arioto.

"It makes us look really strong. Maybe throws us out there a little bit, because people can underestimate us," Henderson said of the weekend. "We're just gonna come out strong in every game we play.

"To come out and (shut out teams) in Regionals, it's like we're starting to do it at the right time."

Now the question is can they keep the momentum going in another competitive road environment? This time they face off against the Georgia Bulldogs in a best-of-three series this weekend. The first to two wins punches their ticket to Oklahoma City. GO BEARS!
