After a 13-31 2019 season the team welcomed Abigail Farler as the new head Softball coach.
With this new leadership going into their 2020 season and the first three games being on the road, the team hopes they can start off on the right foot compared to last season. Last season the team went 1-12 on the road winning one of their first four games on the road.
“We’re looking to go in and have a great year,” Caroline Adair, sophmore from Forth Worth said. “Last year we had a lot of ups and downs. We are looking to grow as a team and have already come a long way”
On top of the addition of Farler, in this past offseason there were five new freshman added to the team including, Ally Mckinney, from Dayton and Lacy Johnson, from Marion, South Carolina.
“We’ve made plent of changes on and off the field,” Adair said “It’s been an amazing change and it’s been extremely detail oriented.”
The idea of being detail oriented and have amazing change will be needed as they go into the Aggie Classic. They will begin by playing Texas A&M and then continue on to play UT Arlington. The team has never played A&M while they have played Arlington seven times. The record against Arlington is three wins and four losses.
This seems to be a tough start for the team but it will be a good test to see how much the lady wildcats softball team has really changed.
The first home game will be against Prarie View A&M University here at Poly Wells Field. The wildcats have played Prarie View 11 times and have only lost once to them.
