Sorry it has been a while since I have given you the inside scoop of the life of a Centenary student athlete. The last couple of weeks have been busy with tests, tournaments, and starting conference play my teammates and I have been quite busy.
It has been a while since my last blog so let me catch you up. Starting on February 26th up until the UMKC series we played a total of 10 games. We beat Louisiana Tech, whom is our rival, by a close 1-0 ball game. We went 8-10 over the ten game stretch and only lost to Stephen F. Austin and Oklahoma State. The loss to SFA was a tough one because as a team we know we are better, we let a few things that did not go our way ruin our momentum. After a tough weekend in Stillwater, Oklahoma at the OSU tournament we returned home to take a 2-1 win over South Alabama before starting conference play against IUPUI.
We are currently 14-15 on the season, with only more wins in sight. Our team is on fire, defensively, offensively, and our pitching is phenomenal. Hitting is contagious and let’s just say we’ve all caught it. We opened conference with a bang sweeping IUPUI in our three game series taking all three with a combined score of 15-1 on the weekend. We have multiple players whose bats are so hot no one can phase them. Our pitching is smooth and consistent and all three of our pitchers can be used in a combination to throw off any ball club around.
Our team is presently in Kansas City, Missouri waiting to play our three game series with UMKC. Weather always seems to be a factor when it comes to conference play for the Ladies. Our series was moved back a day on a count of a rainy forecast. The series should resume Tuesday when we will play our double header followed by one game on Wednesday.
Well Readers that is all for now. Wish us luck!
