    That would have to be the highest pre-season ranking yet! It should be an exciting season!

    As pointed out in that article, there's lots of experience and talent on the roster this season.

    Head Coach Marissa Young and the Blue Devils return 17 of 25 members of last season's ACC Championship team, including 2021 NCFA Second Team All-American Deja Davis and all four members of the event's All-Tournament team – Peyton St. George, Shelby Walters, Kristina Foreman and Gisele Tapia.

    In addition, the Blue Devils welcome last season's fourth-ranked signing class per Extra Innings Softball to the fold for their first season of action in Durham.

    Very good to know that Nina and White extended Marissa Young's contract thru the 2026 season this past summer. Very smart move.

    Bringing this thread back up into consciousness. Season starts in one week with Duke playing in the Kajikawa Classic. The first (11am) is against California Baptist, and the next one immediately follows at 1:30, against #5 Oklahoma State. At least they'll be warmed up for game two.

    Unfortunately it looks like the Friday games won't be on TV, but the Sat/Sun games will be on the Pac-12.com website. Games will be played in sunny Tempe, Az.

    This weekend will be a good test. If we can come out ofthe weekend 4-1 it will solidify us as a top 15 team. 5-0 would like;y make us top 10.

    Two of the games are against ranked teams... OSU #5 and ASU #21. I believe those are last year's final rankings (https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/softba...y/nfca-coaches) in which Duke was #20.

    Here's a 2022 pre-season ranking in which OSU is #3, ASU is #21 and Duke is #13. https://d1softball.com/2022-d1softba...p-25-rankings/

    I don't know if they'll win the games, but they'll be ready. Coach Young wouldn't have it any other way.

    Duke is listed for two of the "Can't miss games" this weekend. (I will miss them all, sigh...but I'll be checking out the scores while vacationing.)

    Why wouldn’t the two games today be live broadcast. That’s so stupid. Good ole PAC 12.

    The Saturday and Sunday games are only on the Pac-12 Network, which is only available if your cable network carries Pac-12 (mine doesn't).

    The season opener has started vs California Baptist and the score is 4-4 after one inning. Walters is pitching and Crabtree had a 2-run homer in the bottom of the first for the Blue Devils. Duke had three errors in the top of the first and all of CB's runs are unearned.

    7-4 Duke, now batting in the bottom of the 3rd. CBU has used three pitchers. Duke is 7-14 at the plate.

    15-4 now. Save some runs for the next game.

    Now final. Good to be 1-0.

    Duke takes a 1-0 lead in the second game vs #5 Oklahoma State on Jacobsen's HR in the B2. Peyton St. George is on the mound for Duke and has allowed 1 hit thus far. This is likely going to be low scoring so every run is big.

    Still 1-0 in the B5. PSG has only allowed 2 hits, although Duke has only 4.

    That's pretty fantastic. She is facing a really, really good team.
