Lady Vols beat NC State; advance to Super Regional
KNOXVILLE (UT Sports) - Madison Shipman had a two-run homer and drove in three and Ivy Renfroe fanned five over seven shutout innings as Tennessee punched its sixth trip to the NCAA Super Regionals with a 7-0 win over NC State on Sunday in Game 6 of the Knoxville Regional.
The Lady Vols (47-10) will now face Alabama in the Supers next weekend at Lee Stadium while NC State finishes its season with a 35-20-1 record after making its first NCAA appearance since 2007.
Renfroe helped Tennessee to its third shutout over the weekend as she and sister Ellen Renfroe combined to not let up a run so far in the NCAA Tournament.
Shipman finished the game 3-for-4 with a double and a home run while Ivy Renfroe let up just one hit on the day, a single up the middle to Lana Van Dyken in the third inning.
Tennessee scored two in the first, two in the second and three in the fourth and controlled the game from start to finish in the victory.
