The University of Oregon softball team ended their run at a National Championship on Sunday.  It was an up and down weekend for the Ducks at the women’s College World Series in Oklahoma.  Oregon won their first game against Florida State, then dropped their second to Florida.  That loss sent them to the loser’s bracket, where they faced and defeated last year’s national champion, the University of Oklahoma.  But Oregon wasn’t able to pull out a win against Alabama, and was knocked out of the tournament.
