Tucson High Grade is excited to go to the World Series with UA

OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (KVOA) – Carlie Scupin, former Tucson High School softball star, dreamed of representing her home university in the Women’s College World Series.

Now a dream comes true.

Scupin and the Wildcats will face No. 1 in the first round of the Women’s College World Series 2021 on Thursday. 3 compete in Oklahoma.

“It means a lot to be from Tucson, to play for this team, to play for Arizona, to play for Coach Candrea,” said Scupin. “I think it’s every little girl’s dream, especially little Tucson girls.”

The Tucson native, who campaigned for legendary high school softball coach Bert Otero for her senior season at Tucson High, said she also looks forward to seeing some of her family members in the bleachers in Oklahoma City.

“When Carlie first came here, I was kind of overwhelmed,” said Jessie Harper, Arizona senior power hitter. “I thought, ‘Wow, this girl is so strong.’ She can hit the ball that far. During training, I think she put a couple of balls on the Gitting building back there earlier this year, and I did [was] just kind of blown away. I was like, ‘Oh my god, where is this girl from?’ “

Scupin hopes to continue to impress as the Wildcats prepare to kick off Thursday with a first pitch at 4:00 p.m. Tucson time.
