Hey Catamount fans,
I hope all of you have been doing well. It has been two weeks since my last post, so let me get you guys updated on what's been happening with Catamount softball.
We have been playing some tough competition getting ready for the conference season. After traveling to both Charlotte and Coastal Carolina, the past two weekends, we have officially finished the tournament portion of our season. The teams we have been competing against have all been solid, and even though we have been in a little bit of a slump lately, record wise, I feel like we are now on the right track to have a successful conference season. We have taken the losses we have experienced the last couple weeks, fixed what we needed to, and improved overall as a team.
Even though we have had a difficult time getting the weather to cooperate this week for practice, we had a good workout in Reid Gym yesterday. We are working hard to get refocused, not only physically, but mentally as well. Coach [Jim] Clift has been going through new breathing and visualization work with the team. We have the physical stuff down, now if we can just improve the mental side of our game I feel like we will be finding ourselves winning more games than losing.
We were able to get back out on the field today, and I felt great about every part of our practice. Everyone was going all out the whole time giving 100 percent, and we are starting to look sharper both defensively and offensively. I am so excited to see what we are going to be able to accomplish this weekend and the rest of the season.
The Catamount softball team will be hosting App this Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m.. The first game Saturday will also be an athletes backing athletes game so I'm sure it will be an exciting environment, and we want everyone to be a part of it. We are planning on having some new games, activities, and prizes coming up soon for our loudest fans, so please come out and support us as we start up our conference season this weekend. I have also heard that we are supposed to be getting some beautiful weather Saturday, and what better way to enjoy it than supporting your Cats!? In the words of one of our captains, Amber Steinhart, "the Catamount softball team is ready to beat that APP," and you won't want to miss it!
Until next time...GO CATS! Thanks and God Bless!
