Hello Everyone! The first weekend in February marks the time that NCAA Division I softball teams to can begin their spring schedules. Two schools in the Atlantic 10 have begun play and have gotten off to a quick start. Here at SBU, we are continuing our process of becoming the best team we can be through some quality practice time. The team has been focused and sharp for the past couple of weeks.
We are 20 days away from our first games of the 2009 season and I know the whole team is getting excited but they also know before that day, we have a lot of work to do. Every practice is an important part of the process that will help us reach our goals. Everyone has been outstanding to this point. The key is to continue that work ethic. The cold of February and cabin fever can start taking hold but the team understands that is part of playing in the north. You have to deal with being inside, while preparing to hit the dirt running in sunny Orlando Florida.
I will be posting every Monday from now on and the night after each game. You will have links to both teams websites so you can read both sides of the story. A little like how Fox News pretends to be fair and balanced. Here at SBU we will give both teams their due evaluation of the game. So look Monday nights for highlights and analysis of each game. You will get a true taste of what its like in the day of an Atlantic 10 Conference team and a St. Bonaventure softball player. Feel free to leave your comments to us, to comment on the game or to just cheer us on!
