3. Are You Ready?

Ole Miss captured hearts across America when the Rebels won the program's first SEC title. The Rebels swept then-No. 11 LSU at home in April and won the series against then-No. 13 Alabama to earn the No. 8 seed in the 2017 SEC Tournament. Junior Kaitlin Lee took the ball and never let go, as Ole Miss beat Mississippi State 2-0, then-No. 1 Florida 2-0, then-No. 15 Alabama 4-1 and then-No. 21 LSU 5-1. The Rebels hosted their first Regional and earned their first Super Regional berth before losing to UCLA by one run in each of the two games.

2. Finished It

It all started on June 9, 2011 when head coach Patrick Murphy resigned from Alabama and accepted the same position at LSU. He was introduced as the head coach at LSU and three days later he resigned, only to return to Tuscaloosa. The 2012 season proved to be a magical one, as Jackie Traina set a program single-season record for wins, Jennifer Fenton set an NCAA record for consecutive stolen bases and the Crimson Tide won the SEC's first national championship.

1. Chop On

The Seminoles walked off on Pitt in the ACC Championship, then lost their first game of the Super Regional to LSU before coming back in extra innings and taking Game 3. FSU then lost its first game of the WCWS to UCLA and battled out of the losers' bracket to take down Georgia, Oregon and UCLA (twice) to make the championship series. The Seminoles only needed two games to make history with both the program's and the ACC’s first national title.
