"Coming out and winning yesterday was huge and so all night last night I was trying not to look ahead pack my stuff for Denver" Lipovsky said.  "Really it was just focusing on coming out they have a great hitting team so I had to come out and hit my pitches, attack their hitters really just to get them to miss hit.

Freshman Lydia Goble drove in a pair of runs for GVSU.

"As a freshman that is really cool to have that opportunity (going to the World Series)" Goble said.  "To do that this year it is going to be such a fun experience, super excited for it."
