Although fall sports are drawing most of the attention around campus these days, the softball team is putting in hard work now.
Even with the season still in the distant future, there is a bit of a buzz and excitement on the softball team. The team has been aggressively training for the upcoming season since Sep. 9 and will continue to practice for four more weeks. They practice four times a week at the softball field.
The 2014 season brings 14 new players that are hopeful to fill in positions left by six graduates of 2013. Alicia DuMonceaux, the head coach of the softball team, is hopeful for what is to come. In spite of the graduate losses, DuMonceaux is “excited to have all of these new faces as part of the program” and is “working on building camaraderie amongst the team and finding the best position for each player.”
