Welcome to the Blugold Fastpitch blog. I'll be adding to this as often as I can to let you know what things are going on in the world of UW Eau Claire and the fastpitch softball team. We are the 2008 NCAA Division III Softball National Champions, and the fall 2008 season is right around the corner. It will be a different team, with the graduation of 4 seniors from the '08 team, and it will be a different season as the defending national champions, but we will approach it with this philosophy: "The challenge is great, but the opportunity is greater." We look forward to the opportunity.
As a point of reference, asst. coach, Robin Baker, and myself will be attending the Midwest Showcase in Ashwaubenon on August 21 and 22, so we look forward to seeing prospective players showcase their skills during those two days.
If you are reading this and will be an incoming freshman at UW Eau Claire this fall and you wish to try out for the team, but have not yet been in contact with me, please contact me ASAP, as there is important eligibility information that you need to know.
I look forward to future posts.
