THREE-PACK OF QUESTIONS FROM LOUISVILLE
with UCSD senior Kris Lesovsky (CF) and sophomores Kirsten Willmon (LF) and Caitlin Brown (1B)
None of you have ever been to Kentucky; what have been your impressions so far?
Lesovsky-"It's much nicer than I thought it would be and I really like Louisville. I think it's really cool how there's kind of a small-town vibe despite its size and all the things going on."
Willmon-"There's a lot more to do than I expected. We had the chance to go to the Louisville Slugger Museum and Churchill Downs-there hasn't been a dull moment. We've been able to sightsee far more than we normally do."
a 6:00 AM flight Sunday was sucky but it was worth it to get here when we did.
There was no jet lag and allowed us the opportunity to sightsee on Monday.
Everything is within walking distance and although there weren't a whole lot of
people around when we got here, there was plenty to do."
Lesovsky-"Compared to last year when it was just Softball in Salem, VA, it's nicer having a bunch of teams and sports. It's not as awkward as it is when the only other athletes you run into are the ones you're playing."
Willmon-"I think the Festival atmosphere is pretty cool, they have a game room and areas where you see other teams. It's interesting to see them, how they interact and realize their not that different from us."
Brown-"It's nice. I like it but we're all on different schedules and don't have a whole lot of time to hang out. Bottom line, we're here for business. You can ask me about the other stuff Saturday night. This is my second NCAA Championship and I'm glad this wasn't the first because we're not as distracted as we might have been."
For you, what was the highlight of today's first game?
Lesovsky-"Monique's (Portugal) home run. It turned a good inning into a great one."
