Fico powers LSU back to the CWS for the first time since 2004

In the nearly two decades that I've covered school sports in the New Haven area the two most dominant athletes were both females.

Kristen Frost of Hand High in Madison was the most electric swimmer I've ever seen. She never lost an individual race in her entire career winning multiple state titles and setting a slew of state records. Frost eventually went to Georgia and then completed her career at SCSU winning a couple of NCAA titles.
LSU's Rachele Fico was the other most dominant player I've seen and she'll take her shot at an NCAA title next week.
Fico threw a 3-hitter to lift the Tigers past Missouri 3-1 in the third and deciding game of the NCAA softball Super Regional at Columbia, Mo. on Sunday.
After Missouri defeated LSU 5-1 in Sunday's opener which lasted 12 innings, Fico, from Oxford won her foruth straight NCAA start to propel the Tigers into the CWS for the first time since 2004.
LSU will face top-ranked California in the opener and you can bet that Fico will get the start.
Check back later for highights, box scores and this week's CWS matchups.
