UW-Eau Claire Women's Softball Team Loaded With Talent


THE UW-EAU CLAIRE WOMEN'S SOFTBALL TEAM IS AGAIN STACKED WITH A ROSTER FULL OF TALENT AND VETERAN LEADERSHIP.
THE BLUGOLDS RETURN SEVEN OF THEIR EIGHT POSITION PLAYERS AND TWO STARTING PITCHERS, INCLUDING TWO-TIME, 2ND-TEAM ALL AMERICAN MALLORY MCKINNEY.
STILL, THE BLUGOLDS ARE NOT TAKING ANYTHING FOR GRANTED AS THEY GET READY FOR THEIR HOME OPENER THIS SATURDAY AGAINST ST. NORBERT...
FRESH OFF OF THEIR SUN WEST CALIFORNIA TOURNAMENT TRIP WHERE EAU CLAIRE COMPILED A RECORD OF 11-1, THE BLUGOLDS RETURN HOME HAVING AMASSED A RECORD OF 12-4 WITH VICTORIES AGAINST FOUR RANKED TEAMS INCLUDING THE NATION'S NUMBER-ONE, ST THOMAS.
NOW BACK AT HOME, THE BLUGOLDS SAY THEY ARE FINE-TUNING THEIR GAME AND WORKING OUT MINOR KINKS BEFORE THEIR SATURDAY'S HOME OPENER...
THIS YEAR'S SQUAD HAS A TOP NOTCH LINE-UP WITH NINE OF EAU CLAIRE'S 10 REGULAR PLAYERS BATTING IN THE .300'S.
SEVEN HITTERS HAVE ALREADY BELTED HOME RUNS FOR THE YEAR, PUTTING THE BLUGOLDS ON PACE TO BREAK THEIR SINGLE SEASON HOME RUN RECORD SET LAST SEASON.
HEAD COACH LELIE HUNTINGTON KNOWS THE EXPECTATIONS FOR THIS TEAM ARE HIGH.
