KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WJHL) – The Tennessee softball team was ranked No. 9 in the country, hosting an NCAA Regional set and looked poised for a deep postseason run. It all ended faster than expected.

The Lady Vols lost to James Madison, 3-1 in the Knoxville Regional showdown, bumping them to the elimination game against Liberty, and lost that one by a score of 6-4.

They ran into two of the best mid-major softball teams in the country, with James Madison only losing one game all year and Liberty coming off their Atlantic Sun regular season and conference tournament championships.
