Softball Field / Cage Cleanup

Cleanup and preparation for Winter will be done on the softball field on Tuesday, Nov 8th, 4pm - 5pm.  Includes taking down and storing the cage net, rolling up and securing the windscreens, removal and storing the padding from the backstop, and storing practice screens.  Any help is appreciated.

Reminder that Tuesday is also Election Day -- so all eligible voters are encouraged to vote before or after the field cleanup and make your voice heard!

2023 Season / Schedule Early Preview

Practice for the 2023 season will start on Monday March 13th.  Typically we would take off the Friday before Spring Break (March 31st) and restart on the Wednesday or Thursday of Spring Break (April 5th/6th).  But that is always dependent on game schedule and weather.  Right now our first game is scheduled for Tuesday April 4th (during Spring Break).

Most of our games are on Tues and Thurs with 5pm game starts.  But there are some exceptions (Monday, Friday, Saturday games).  And weather always causes changes in the schedule during the Spring.

See this link for current Softball game schedule across Varsity, JV and C-Squad (9A).  As non-conference, tournaments are scheduled they will be updated on this schedule (think early 2023).

Anatomy Of A Teammate

What kind of teammate are you...

"I'm looking for players who make their teammates better. You do that with enthusiasm and passion ..."  Mike Kryzewski

Anatomy Of Romero's Swing

Take a look at this great breakdown of one of the best hitters in softball - Sierra Romero from the University of Michigan.  A nice image of what she focuses on and feels on each swing, a video showing those points in motion.  She also discusses her mentality to her at bats.

Defying Doubt

Determination, hard work, belief in yourself can overcome doubts that others may see in you...
