Sorry folks, I have not been able to blog lately...just been too busy. The weather is rotten and it has kept me busy. We have had 6 games since we last communicated and we came out 3-3 against some quality teams. At least we finally had our first home games verses Charlotte! Yep...you guessed it, it rained most of the day not to mention the sleet and snow before hand.
Our lastest results...
SBU 8, Canisius 6...Canisius 9, SBU 8
SBU 7, Robert Morris 3...Robert Morris 12, SBU 9 (darkness shortened)
Charlotte 1, SBU 0...SBU 6, Charlotte 3 (rain shortened)
Our record stands at 11-18 and 6-10 in the Atlantic 10. It's not where we want to be but I must admit that I like watching this team play. We can hit one out of the park on any swing and we have made some amazing defensive plays. The pitching staff is really starting to hit a stride. Jen Sansano and Diana Phalon have both thrown outstanding games.
Our leading hitters...
Brooke Frey .341 8 doubles, 4 homeruns 16 RBI
Maureen Wells .338 4 doubles 6 homeruns 25 RBI
Ashley Snider .319 7 doubles 1 triple 9 homeruns 21 RBI
We have slugged 30 homeruns on the year. I am almost sure (I will check the records) that is a new program record. We are ranked in the top 30 teams on a NATIONAL scale in homeruns per game.
Our remaining games...ALL at SBU
UB Wednesday (1 game) 4pm start
St. Joe's Friday (3pm)
St. Joe's Saturday (12pm)
Temple (2) Sunday (end of 2011 season...it went fast!) 12pm start
