Road to OKC: Game 1 vs. Texas A&M

The Hokies will have their hands full today against the Aggies. While they are getting most of the attention from the media, the Hokies are definitely the underdog. Outside of Megan Gibson, they Aggies don't have a lot of power threats. But they can all hit, with almost everyone in their batting order above .300.

It will be up to Angela Tincher to keep the Aggies at bay and give her offense a chance to scratch a run against Gibson. Gibson will go out there with something to prove. Many thought she should have been named player of the year over Tincher.

Check back later for a recap and photos from the game.
