Softball catches cabin fever

The women’s softball team has the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference title to defend. “The team is feeling ‘cabin fever’ as we are anxious to get outside,” head coach Karen Pelkey said.

In preparation for the upcoming season the team has been working out in the gym six days a week and will be in California over spring break to practice and start competing.

While in California the Lady Cavs swing into their season on March 3 against Ohio Northern. Pelkey said, “I am preparing by looking at the big picture and trying to guide us through the next few weeks so that we are ready to go on March 3.”

Sophomore Diana Frosh said. “I hope we beat Rowan in the regional and Arcadia in the PAC since we lost to them last year.”

“The team was very welcoming, and did not belittle me because I am a freshman. It is something I look forward to everyday,” Amy Welch said. “I hope we win the PAC and I get to know everyone better.”

This season the three veteran seniors, Rita Horning, Heather Tu and Mel Klaus will be the players to look out for. “They have helped build this program they will be the ones with the experience to lead the team,” Pelkey said.

Pitching will be a large task to fill but sophomore Ange Templin “will be the pitcher up to the challenge in 2003,” Pelkey said

With last year’s record 37-8 Coach Pelkey has no expectations for this year. “I want us to leave it all on the field every time we have the opportunity to play the game,” Pelkey said. “I have always told them to win the game one inning at a time.”
