  1. Extra Star Power: Auburn-Bound Denver Bryant Brings Baseball Swag to Mojo Auburn Tigers, Brittany Lewis, Class of 2020, Denver Bryant, Extra Elite 100, Tennessee Mojo November 5, 2019 Denver has been a baseball standout for years, only recently coming over to softball, but her skills quickly earned her scholarship offers. Tennessee Mojo-Lewis' Denver Bryant grew up loving and playing baseball, but since she started playing softball as a freshman she transformed herself into one of the top softball prospects in the nation. "Denver not only has a natural God-given ability, but also has developed a skill-set well beyond athletes her age due to her years playing with boys on the baseball field," Mojo coach Brittany Lewis said. "She has spent years being the only girl on the dirt, which has created a strong confidence when it comes to playing softball. Just this past year we transitioned her to a softball glove and we are still working on adding a third finger to the softball when she throws." The Auburn-bound 2020 SS put up huge stats this fall for Dougherty High of Albany, Georgia, batting .759 with an .824 on-base percentage and finishing with 11 homers, seven triples, 12 doubles and 36 RBIs in 54 at-bats. She is a big reason Mojo-Lewis is expected to be a major force at 18U on the national stage next summer. Danielle Tait "Denver is the best athlete I've ever seen or played with," Middle Tennessee State-bound 2020 P Danielle Tait said. "As a pitcher, having her at short is the best thing I could ever ask for. Her range is like nothing I have ever seen before. I know that any ball that goes her way has a very good chance of being an out. And her hitting is absolutely insane. Pitching against her in practice is so hard because she can basically hit anything no matter where it is. Denver is unique because the way she plays is so effortless, but she is so amazing. She is a big leader on our team by action and it's so amazing playing with her. She is like a sister to me and I'm so thankful I've gotten to play with her these past three years." Bryant's teammates say she effects games on offense and defense. Denver (bottom left) and her Mojo-Lewis teammates. "Denver is definitely a beast on and off the field," Memphis-committed 2021 OF/1B Emya Munford said. "She is a very hard worker on and off the field. She is so determined to do what she has to so she can get the job done. She is always encouraging others on the team as well. The team can count on Denver on defense and offense. She is a wonderful teammate and I couldn't ask for anyone better." Bryant's athletic ability is another big strength that helps her make plays many cannot. "Denver is a all-around athlete offensively and defensively," Troy-committed 2021 3B Aayanah Hughes said. "On the field, she shows out for the benefit of the team. She is not only able to make the fundamental plays, but she also makes the big plays too! She is a special piece to the team, not only because of her undeniable talent, but because of the wonderful teammate she is. She wants the best for everyone but is such a competitor and puts success above everything."
  2. I don't mind if it is objective and does not begin with some predetermined premise. That being said, based on the content of the announcement, I cannot be assured of any of the above. The announcement in the OP states "as natural disasters become worse". Not sure how you apply objective measurements to that statement.
  3. Jad0003 thanks for the update. I did not have Sydney Cox or Paige Geraghty on my list. Presuming this class holds up and the quality of our most recent class I believe we should have some very good players going forward. Agree that we could have a strong pitching rotation with the talent in this class especially if Dismukes is as good as advertised.
  4. I believe initial signing date is November 13; just around the corner.
  5. There is a short video on the Auburn Softball Twitter page showing that construction has started on the indoor facility.
  6. I presume fall ball is winding down. I know they have another intra-squad game scheduled this afternoon; a battle between the Blueberries and Pumpkins as the designated teams. None of this boring Orange and Blue stuff. Just some observations from my attending a couple of double headers. I feel we are developing some quality depth at all positions. I was impressed with the transfer King in CF. Thought Garcia was good at 2nd. Florian did some good things at 3rd. Appear to be a lot of good athletes on the team and several with very good speed. Most everyone looked "comfortable" at the plate. I was surprised we did not hit more balls over the fence; thought I would see more. One player we did not see was KK Dismukes who was held out to rest her arm. She could be a factor if good as advertised both as a pitcher and hitter. She comes from a 4A school and was dominant in that category. At the plate she had 179 at bats and hit .587 with 23 HR. If she gets healthy she could make a difference in our season. Kind of hate to get my hopes up over a player we have not seen. Just a few brief thoughts on my part. Maybe someone else attended games and could add their impressions.
  7. I did not know out VB team was so poor until I read this thread and looked at our record. As of today, we are 0 - 7 in SEC play. I have always felt VB was a good sport but admit I have not attended any games in person. Clearly need an upgrade in order to be competitive.
  8. Apparently having some intra-squad games. Video with Coach Lenti and Lindsey Garcia. https://twitter.com/AuburnSoftball
  9. Normally, there is a "light grey" notation at the top and bottom of the page when it has been edited?????? Strange.
  10. This from the AUM softball site: AUBURN, Ala. --- The Auburn Montgomery softball team defeated the Tigers of Auburn University 3-1 in a 10-inning scrimmage game on Friday, Oct. 18 from Jane B. Moore Field. The victory marks for AUM's second scrimmage win over an SEC school in the last two seasons. The Warhawks bested the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ala. 5-4 in fall scrimmage action on Oct. 7, 2018. "We're all very excited about Friday's outcome, and also very grateful towards Auburn University for being such a great host," Head Coach Eric Newell said. "This is another big moment that's going to do nothing but benefit our program moving forward." Maddie Parks led AUM at the plate, with a two-hit performance. Lauren Haskins added an RBI triple, while Olivia Aycock accounted for an RBI groundout. Jaycie Walker and Parker Pinholster both also logged a hit for the Warhawks in the game. In the circle for the Warhawks, Chanel Newcomer and Alanna Goble combined to toss all 10 innings. The duo allowed just one earned run on six hits, while walking just one batter and collecting six strikeouts. Newcomer struck out four, while allowing just one earned run and four hits over 6.1 innings. Goble pitched the final 3.2 innings of the game for the Orange and Black, giving up no runs on two hits and striking out two. The Warhawks will return to action on Friday, Oct. 25 at Coastal Alabama Community College South.
  11. Softball 10/18/2019 9:45:00 PM Tigers drop fall exhibition finale AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn softball team dropped its final fall exhibition of the 2019 calendar year as Auburn University at Montgomery pulled ahead in the late innings, then fended off several Tiger rallies. The game was called after a pre-determined 10 innings. "You always want to show progress," said head coach Mickey Dean. "We didn't swing it as well tonight, especially with runners in scoring position. But, for the fall, I thought we made great progress." In what turned into a low-scoring affair between the two teams, Ashlee Swindle got the start against AUM and went four innings, struck out two batters, surrendered one hit and allowed one unearned run. From there, Lexie Handley took the reins and scattered four hits over the next four innings. Handley allowed two earned runs during the top of the eighth inning. Samantha Yarbrough and Bailee Dempsey went the eighth and ninth innings, respectively, and did not allow a run. On the evening, the quartet of Auburn pitchers struck out five batters and issued only one walk. "(The pitching) wasn't bad," Dean said. "One thing we talked about, when we scored a run and our pitcher comes out, instead of having a shutdown inning, which is what you need from your pitcher, we give up two runs." Auburn's run came during the bottom of the seventh when Haley Nillen, who pinched hit for Lindsey Garcia, banked a double off the top of the left-field fence, which plated Brittany Maresette from first and tied the game. The Tigers had an opportunity to take the lead in the seventh and ninth innings, but were unable to capitalize with runners on second and third in both innings. additional info. from the twitter page: Tyler King was back in CF. The Twitter account indicates later that Dowell 3B, Koepke SS, M. Perry 2B, Calvert LF and Godwin C. Do not see any indication that Tannon played.
  12. Softball 10/17/2019 3:22:00 PM 10/17/2019 Auburn caps fall exhibition schedule by hosting AUM AUBURN, Ala. – Auburn softball will conclude its fall exhibition schedule when the Tigers host Auburn University at Montgomery Friday night. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. CT at Jane B. Moore Field. "I just want to continue to see us grow and get better," head coach Mickey Dean said. "We've done a nice job this fall of getting better each week and now this is the last opportunity we have to this (calendar) year to play outside competition and showcase how hard the girls have been working as a team and as individuals." Auburn is coming off a nine-inning victory at Georgia Tech last Thursday. The Tigers totaled 11 strikeouts, including striking out three consecutive batters on multiple occasions, and 15 hits throughout the contest against the Yellow Jackets. Through seven fall exhibition games over the last three weeks, Auburn has not dropped a contest. "We are still going to play everybody (against AUM)," Dean said. "We're going to try to get everyone in and play as many innings as we can, because this is our last opportunity this (calendar) year to really go out and show us as coaches and the fans the work they've done." As per all fall exhibition home games, admission is free to the public. There will be limited concessions serving bottled beverages, assorted candy and snacks. Following the game, Dean and the softball program will host an informational meeting regarding On Deck Club. Agenda items for the fourth-year club include levels of membership, allocation of funds, upcoming team events and club updates. A registration table for new members who would like to join will be set up following the meeting. Print Friendly Version
  13. Pannell committed to Coach Dean in early 2018.
  14. Playing Georgia Tech today away. They are 4 -0 in fall ball having beat Chipola 15-1 and 5-4. Played a couple of 10 inning contest; one vs Shorter and won by 12 runs and another, vs Jacksonville State and winning by 9. Last season had overall record of 31-27. Roster shows 7 Jr, 8 Soph, 8 Fresh. Should be good experience for AU to go on the road.
  15. Thanks, I corrected the date in my entry.
