It's been 27 days since practice began. Yes, it all starts in the gym for spring softball in Wisconsin, but this year's batch of Blugolds has had a great start to the 2011 season. The team faces each day's tasks and challenges together. It's amazing to see the spirit of the team already come alive.
There are six days left on the countdown to game one of the season. This team of UWEC women are heading to Rosemount, Minnesota for two dome double headers on March 5th and 6th. Saturday, they will be facing St. Thomas at 4:00 and 6:30 PM. Sunday, they will play Buena Vista of Iowa at 11:00 AM and 1:30 PM. They are definitely eager to have some real playtime.
Looking ahead, we are eager to say "See ya later!" to the frigid cold and mounds of snow on our campus during spring break. We will be headed to the Tuscon Invitational Games for ten games in the heat and sun of Arizona.
As of now, each player is working hard on. I have been so impressed with the combined efforts of these wonderful student athletes. This team has a great season to come!
