Milestone victory No. 700 is a reminder of how far Villanova Softball has come since 1985
One of the inherent appeals of sport is its transparency.
Put simply, numbers matter.
They have meaning on the scoreboard, of course, as well as inside the classroom. For those seeking a quick summary of a team's abilities, they offer an instant snapshot.
And some figures, by their very magnitude, still manage to stand out in a sports age so often overwhelmed by them.
Mention 700 to a Philadelphian and their mind is likely to flash back to a section of rowdy fans in the upper levels of the Vet.
At Villanova these days, the 700 plateau stands as a reminder of what passion, spirit and commitment from hundreds of student-athletes across nearly three decades can accomplish.
