How do THREE pitchers miss the season?
This stuff doesn’t go on at the P5 schools, as far as I know.
Come to think of it. I have seen over half of the softball games via ESPN+ and have yet to see Shannon Haddad, Mo Quinlan, nor Addison Kostrencich pitch this season.
I follow the team peripherally but I understand that our 2 best pitchers were out the whole season with injuries. I imagine their presence might have made a big difference in this seasons record.
Sorry Dennis but this team doesn't have the pitching to play with any good team in the BW or in the country. Just like Baseball they have been a MAJOR disappointment this year and I expect much better from our Softball program. We never seem to have enough pitching and we usually have to rely on one really good pitcher. Well this year we didn't even have that one really good pitcher to rely on. Hopefully things turn around next year. Kim and Knipe are my two favorite coaches at the Beach in that they both get the most out of their players but Kim didn't get it this year. With only 5 Seniors on this team they will get better but they need some serious upgrades in the starting pitching.
Softball beats CPSLO today to salvage the last game of the weekend. There is still hope, but it will be tough after losing the first two games of the series!!!
Our softball ladies are in the middle of another close game up at CPSLO. We are up 2 to 1 in the middle of the 4th inning.
