The Utah softball team's great season continues on Saturday as they take on the Tennessee Volunteers at 11am, in round two of the Knoxville regional.
The Utes are coming off of a win over Virginia Tech by the score of 6-1. The win over the Hokies was the first for the Utes in the NCAA regionals since 2006, when they beat Indiana. The Utes were lead by Katie Donovan, who recorded six strikeouts, while Kate Dickman went 2-of-3 with a solo home run offensively.
