    2018 fall softball practice starts

    First fall game in two days. Twitter page has a video of the girls lifting weights and rafting down the Chattahoochee. Any news out there?

    softball 2018 Fall schedule

    Actually they have 3 pitchers coming in. Montana Fouts (recruit), Sarah Cornell (Hofstra), and Goodman. Fouts is also a batswoman, don't know about the other two.

    softball 2018 Fall schedule

    Thanks for sharing. Looks like the typical fall ball schedule, but sometimes we get surprised. Last year we played Chipola, who had Krystal Goodman. She held us to two runs, I think, and has now transferred to alabama.

    thanks for the info on Ms. Hudson. The NCAA changed the rules last year (or was it earlier this year?), and now the coaches cannot contact the student-athlete prior to Sept. 1 of her junior year in HS. We'll see if this reverses the trend toward 14-year old commits.

    All info indicates she is an Auburn commit. Her Dad went to vet school at Auburn. I think that one article was just a slipup.

    This really bears on 2020, I think. The Birmingham Thunderbolts just won the 16U natty, led by a pitcher named Shelby Lowe. The article linked below calls her an Alabama commit, but an article on the same page yesterday called her an Auburn commit, and posters on Ultimate College Softball all confirm she's an Auburn commit. There is also another Auburn commit on the team. https://www.flosoftball.com/articles/6237189-birmingham-thunderbolts-dorsett-win-pgf-16u-premier-championship

    Softball adds transfer pitcher

    Great news for the Class of 2018. Seems to be a strikeout pitcher with a high of 12 at Akron. 92 walks in 44 appearances - not bad. 2.45 ErA pretty good for a freshman. Welcome to the Plains!

    D1 Softball Head Coach Changes

    Think you meant to say $100K more - White was making 237.5,from what I've read elsewhere. They had just given him a raise last year, I believe.

    Thanks for the reference to that article, it was worth reading again. Also made me feel better about Dean. I guess the PTB just decided to limit the number of staff members listed on the "Coaches" page.

    The newly styled roster indicates we are down to 18 players now, plus the three coming in this fall. This is closer to where most teams operate, I think, but I recall Myers having up to 30,and always at least 25. The coaching staff page now only lists Dean, Smith, Ketelhut, and Megan Reynolds (DOO). I think the volunteer position Carosone had only lasts for a year. ?? She is playing with the Bandits this summer. Also, I don't seem to be able to access Twitter.

    Transferring within the conference is one of those things that isn't done. I guess you could do it by sitting out a year, but I don't know of anyone that has. Correction: Just remembered that Amanda Sanchez transferred from Missouri to LSU. I think only graduate transfers can do this. Greenwood showed some promise with the bat in 2017, so maybe she will be a pleasant surprise. I see McCrackin entrenched at second. Assuming Podany moves to center, left would be between Greenwood and Crocker, with Moseley an unknown in the mix.

    Very sorry to see Olszewski leave, as she was one of my favorite prospects. Here is the link to the UAB announcement: https://uabsports.com/news/2018/7/11/softball-uab-adds-jenna-olszewski-to-roster.aspx I share jimpecht's concerns. Was hoping to see some big bats transfer in; instead, one I had high hopes for goes the other way.

    No near term plans for Vandy Softball

    Dang! I pretty much knew this, but Vandy is my nearest SEC venue. Maybe we'll schedule another game against UT in Columbia.
