May 16, 1982 — Creighton’s softball team advances to the NCAA Women’s College World Series with a 3-2 win against South Carolina.

CU defeated the Gamecocks twice to punch the Bluejays’ ticket to the inaugural WCWS.

The Bluejays were led by Jean Tierney, a 1981 first-team All-American selection and the first female athlete inducted into the Creighton Athletic Hall of Fame. She also starred on the basketball court for the Lady Jays.
