The University of Michigan softball team is on its way to the super regionals of the NCAA tournament, and it's all thanks to center fielder Lindsay Doyle. With Michigan leading by a run, Arizona State batting in the bottom of the seventh, Amber Freeman hit what looked like a walkoff home run, but Doyle climbed the ladder to make the catch. It was good enough to land at No. 1 of the day's top plays on SportsCenter.

And coach Carol Hutchins' reaction? Priceless.
