The final eight teams in the 2017 NCAA Division 1 Softball season will be playing for the chance to win the Women’s College World Series with an updated bracket here. Each game of the 2017 Women’s College World Series will take place from ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The 8 teams will compete in a double-elimination format until only two teams are left. Those two remaining teams will then play in a best of three championship series to determine the 2017 National Champion.
The Oklahoma Sooners are the defending National Champions and return after taking the difficult road in the first two rounds. They lost their Regional opener against North Dakota State and had to battle back by winning four straight elimination games. In the Super Regional, they had to go to Auburn and they won the first two games to book their spot back in Oklahoma City. Results for the Regional round can be found here and the Super Regional round can be found here.
Of the eight schools, all of them have made a previous appearance at the WCWS and the field includes Florida, UCLA, and Washington. All eight teams are listed below with only Texas A&M (2008) not having made an appearance in the previous four seasons.
