Our February schedule of games interrupted by ol' man winter. We were able to play 4 games February 13-14 but shortly after, the Arctic Blast hit the Midwest & Southern states. It brought 6 inches of snow, ice, and freezing temps. The snow, ice, temps are lingering and it doesn't appear we will play any more February games. Even our tournament south of us in Fayetteville Arkansas is encountering freezing temps with potential freezing rain. I guess March cannot arrive soon enough! Hopefully that will bring us more spring like weather. We are fortunate to have a great indoor facility to keep up with workouts & great team energy. We are anxious to play again when the weather allows.
During our opening weekend of games February 13-14, the EU offense came out swinging scoring 38 runs in 4 games. Player highlights were freshman Kiara Carrier (Bear, Delaware) with a HR, triple & 2 doubles....sophomore Megan Washam (Corinth, Texas) had 10 RBI's in 4 games also with HR, triple, double and more...sophomore Rebel Robinson (Crowley, Texas) got her first HR of the season and played some outstanding defense at 3B...sophomore pitcher Michaela Tolliver (Lee's Summit, MO) & senior pitcher Julie Blevins (Dallas, Texas) got their first wins of the season in the circle and threw the ball very well.
Two of our player's were selected as Conference pitcher & player of the week...congrats to sophomores Michaela Tolliver & Megan Washam on being named pitcher & player of the opening weekend for their performances.

After playing very well in our last double header at St. Gregory's University, we have been hit with winter weather and have been inside the past two weeks. Due to the weather we have had to canceled 8 games. The good news is that we will be getting on a plane on the 28th and will be heading to Florida to play in the RussMatt Invitational. Games will start on March 2nd and we will finish up on the 6th. We will be playing double headers against #22 Point Park, Cornerstone, Trinity International, and Division II Findlay. In all we will play 8 games in 5 days. This is always a good trip for us as it prepares us well for our conference season. Please be in prayer for safe travel a great weather.
