Crusader softball team wrapping up a very busy fall semester. September-October workouts went very well. Team played scrimmage games against some JUCO's. Also played one double-header against the Razorbacks. EU offense performed very well scoring 6 runs on the day against SEC pitching. Our team speed is the best ever giving us the "rabbits" to put a lot pressure on the defense. We beat out 3 infield hits against Arkansas. This is a team that will be an offensive threat for us. If the pitching & defense step up, this could be a very interesting 2015 season.
Team has been working hard indoors with Coach Getty strength & fitness workouts. The hitters, slappers, and pitchers continue to work on their game making great improvements. This is not a "game ready preparation" time of year so we are working on certain areas of our game that gave us problems during the fall. We like the improvements we see and we continue working hard.
Our season is slated to open up February 6, 2015 at the LSU-Alexandria campus. This team seems to ready to play and February 6 cannot come too soon.
