First Outside Practice...

Had a beautiful day for practice today... 55 degrees and bright blue sky. However it was not the best practice but the pitchers threw extremely well! We need to focus better.

Maureen Wells named team co-Captain for 2010

Congratulations to junior Maureen Wells for being named team co-Captain. She joins seniors, Steph Narde and Sherri Thompson as the team's captains for the 2010 season.

"Moe" has really worked hard and has shown she can make mature decisions and take her game to the next level. She is a great communicator with both her teammates and the coaching staff which I consider one of the most important aspects of being a team captain." - Coach Threehouse

She joins a very short list of student-athletes that have served as captains since I started coaching in 1997. I am sure Maureen will represent that tradition in outstanding fashion.

Norfolk State Tournament

Our tournament at Norfolk State for March 13-14, 2010 was rained out. Seemed every game from New York to Florida was rained on at some point this weekend. Well...March does come in like a Lion.

The Coach's Perspective

Our 2010 southern swing was an interesting one. The weather cooperated with little rain (a rain out vs. Campbell University as the only blip) but the temps barely reached out of the 40's on most days. Actually, it is the same weather we will be playing in most of the season.

A 5-8 record is not something to jump for joy for, but we did get to see if the offense was improved and if we were going to compete when the going got tough. It looks like the answer to both is a, Yes. We had a day verses North Carolina A&T that I was disappointed with but we came out to compete in every other game. I think we learned that we can't just show up...we have to be at our best every day. That is the ONLY way you can compete with Atlantic 10 teams.

We came back hitting .229 as a team which is an improvement but it still needs to be higher. If we can get into the .250 range we can compete for a championship. Anything less and it will be tough to win in the A10. Defensively we played well for being the first 13 games on a real field and we saw progress from players that needed to step up. That is an encouraging sign. The pitchers threw well at times but we have to stay away from walks and hit batters. Any time you put more runners makes it tough to stop good teams.

The most encouraging signs were how aggressive we were on the base paths and how we swung the bat on most days. We were looking to score a lot of runs. The biggest things we need to remember is that hitting is an art form. We can't go up looking to hit every ball out of the park...we need to look for great at bats when the game is on the line. If we do that, more and more clutch hits will come. Fundamentals are the Winning win games by doing things right.

The TOP 5 Hitters through 13 Games...
.316 Shelly Seeger (JR) 6-19, 4 runs scored, 4 RBI
.308 Jessenia Andujar (FR) 12-39, 12 runs scored, 5 RBI
.278 Hali Enderby (FR) 5-18, 5 runs scored, 1 RBI
.243 Maureen Wells (JR) 9-37, 7 runs scored, 1 RBI
.235 Brooke Frey (SO) 8-34, 6 runs scored, 8 RBI

We had a great time today visiting the Battleship North Carolina. We were able to take a self-guided tour of the majority of the ship. It was amazing to see what the Greatest Generation did for all of us and how they did it.

After the visit we traveled to Dunn, NC for two games against Campbell University on Tuesday. The weather does not look like it will cooperate so everyone keep your fingers crossed!
