AUBURN, Ala. -- As Victoria Draper prepares to play her final NCAA Regional in an Auburn uniform, she's reminded of a small piece of advice her mom always told her.
"Leave a place better than you found it."
That's stuck with Draper throughout her senior season. It hasn't all exactly gone according to plan with a new coach, a difficult transition period and what has been an up-and-down season for this Auburn softball team. But the reality is that the Tigers are now in the NCAA Tournament, which means anything can happen.
