Atlanta Regional Game 6 Quotes

Boston University
Head Coach Shawn Rychcik

On his thoughts on the both the game and the regional:
“I think Georgia Tech is a really good team. We had our hands full coming in. As far as Georgia Tech was concerned, I thought we could put up runs against them, it was just a matter of if we could shut them down. Jen Yee proved that she is one of the best hitters in the country. We didn’t have an answer; we threw the ball in the bottom near the dirt and she hit it out and we threw it up in her eyes and she hit it out. Up and down their lineup, they hit well and that was something that we didn’t know if we could contain. I am really proud of my kids. This is the first time they have been to the regional in seven years, so they had no idea what to expect. We played every inning carefree. I am really proud of my players and proud of the program. We come out of here with the most wins in school history and the furthest any Boston University team has made it and the farthest in our conference. I think it is a good statement of where our conference is and what kind of team we had this year.”

#23 Cassidi Hardy, P
On being the No. 4 seed playing in the championship game:
“It felt really good. We were coming in as the underdog and we really wanted to make a statement for Boston University.”

On how this experience will impact next year:
“We are losing six seniors, but since we have so many young kids coming in, it is going to make a difference. We can let them know this is what it feels like to make it this far and how much better we can be next year. It is just going to feed into the fire for the future.”

Georgia Tech
Head Coach Sharon Perkins

On how the Yellow Jackets broke the pitchers’ duel and came out with a win:
“I think they did a good job putting it in play. We made a couple of errors and were kind of rushing it. It wasn’t all Kristen Adkins. Jessica Coan had already owned them Friday so I felt like it was a good time to make a change. Bringing in Coan seemed like the logical choice.”

On the three Yellow Jacket homeruns on the night:
“The homeruns were kind of snowballing there. I mean Yee has been clutch all season. It is like she can hit any pitcher, and she is so calm in the box. She is very patient and waits for the pitches she likes to drive. They were line drives and were still carrying out of the park. The last few weeks, Jessica Sinclair has been crushing the ball.”

On what Georgia Tech’s first Super Regional appearance means for the program:
“When you start the season you don’t know what’s going to happen. You try to make goals along the way, and that was one of the goals. It was kind of lofty at the beginning when you had not been there before. We are just excited to be here for another weekend.”

#10 Jen Yee, 2B
On her two homeruns in the regional championship game:
“I was seeing the ball really well the first time we played Boston and I was just missing it. Tonight I was feeling really good, being aggressive, and it came out well for me.”

#12 Jessica Coan, P
On what was working for her on the mound and her defense’s help behind her:
“When the ball is wet and it is raining, you need the defense’s help. My defense was awesome, they made all the plays they needed to. My screwball was working really well today. They were lunging at it and not waiting for it. It was a really good pitch to keep them off balance.”
