Hey Catamount softball fans,





Our first tournament starts a week from today in Charleston, S.C. We are so excited to get out on the field and play after being cooped up in the gym for practice with all the snow.


We have been taking advantage of any "warm" weather we can get to be out on the field, and have finally been able to be outside a little bit this week.


We have been working our pitchers pretty hard getting some live at-bats any chance we can get. We have also been doing a lot of situational defense to make sure we are ready for competition. We are looking pretty smooth if I do say so myself. Not only have we been focusing on getting our physical game ready, but we've also been working on our mental game and deciding what we want to accomplish this season.


Last night we had a team meeting to put together our goals for the year and two words that kept coming up were "limitless" and "relentless." By working on having those two qualities, it is our goal this season to change the way people view Catamount softball.


This team is one of the most dedicated and passionate teams I have ever played on, and we are so ready to prove to everyone what we are made of. Despite what any pre-season rankings have to say, we are ready to make this season one to remember, and we hope you guys will come out and support us. 


Please keep us in your prayers for safe travels this month as we will be on the road every weekend for the rest of the month of February.


Also, don't forget about our first home game March 15th against Elon. We are hoping to pack out the stands with screaming fans, so please come out and support your Catamount softball team! I hope you all have a great Valentines weekend coming up and until next time...

Hey Catamount Fans,


It's Taylor Sigmon reporting from the Catamount softball team. This is my first blog, so for those of you who don't know me, I'm a freshman here at Western Carolina from the small town of Catawba, North Carolina.

I have been playing softball since I was three, and I could not be more thankful that God led me to Western Carolina. I love this school and my team more than I ever thought I would. I guess you could call me a home body because I was so nervous about coming to college and being away from my family, but this team has quickly become a family away from home for me. With that said, let me get to the part that you all are really interested in...the start of the season!

Softball season is rolling around again and I am so excited to start my first season as Catamount. I feel like I can speak for the whole team when I say we are so ready to get out of the offseason and start the season. We have worked extremely hard this fall getting up at 5:30 every morning to hit the weight room or go run, and I can't say I will miss those days much, but they have definitely made us prepared for the spring season.

Since we've been back from Christmas break we have been working hard every day at practice getting ready for game situations. We have done a lot of scrimmaging and hitting off of our pitchers (who are obviously some of the best in the Socon J)  to get us used to seeing live pitching again. We have been going hard every single day, and I don't think there has been a practice where I haven't seen one of my teammates lay out for a ball and get dirty. That shows me that everyone is just as ready as I am to make this season one of the best seasons that this school has ever seen. We have worked a lot on the small details of our game in the last few weeks as well like bunting, situations, and base running trying to work out all the kinks before game day.

Needless to say, the Catamount softball team is extremely excited to start the season. We have our first tournament this weekend at USC Upstate and I can't wait to play in an actual game against an actual's been way to long. We open our conference season at home against App State on March 9th and we would really appreciate all the support we can get. So bring all your friends and come out to watch some softball because it should be a great game.

Until next time...GO CATS! Thanks and God Bless!
