Fico, Barwise and others as the NCAA tourneys heat up

On the seventh day, Rachele Fico rested.
And LSU still got the win.
The Tigers' softball team defeated Texas A&M  2-1 on Sunday to roll through the regional undefeated.
The win moves LSU into the Super Regional where they'll take on No. 9 seed Missouri with a berth in the College World Series on the line.

You can follow the action on ESPN or ESPN3. Here are highlights from Sunday's game.
Fico, of Oxford, is sure to get a start in the Super Regional which begin on Thursday.

Orange's Allison Barwise is the focus of a nice feature by Jim Fuller in Monday's Register. Check it our here. I wrote about Barwise a couple of times while she was just tearing up the high school scene at Amity.
It's great to see her continued success at Boston University.

Chris Hunn will write about the Sacred Heart University baseball this week in the Register. I'll be sure to link to it when Chris is done with the story of the team that was 1-9 to start the season and will be headed to the NCAA Tournament.
SHU won the Northeast Conference tournament on Saturday and will find out their NCAA foe on May 28. The Pioneers have several local stars on the team like Seymour's John Murphy and Dan Perez.
