Meet Katie Burkhart, pitcher for the ASU softball team. See photos and a biography of Katie below.
The Arizona State University Sun Devils are just two wins away from taking the WCWS title, and pitcher Katie Burkhart wants to bring the win home to Tempe.
“It feels amazing. This is what we have worked so hard for all season and just dedicated ourselves to get here. To be here finally, this is where we want to be. It is a real honor to be here and see our work has paid off.”
The Devils will play Texas A & M this evening. Game 2 is scheduled tomorrow night, and if a third game is necessary, it will be played on Wednesday. Good Luck to Katie and the Sun Devils!
