Bah gawd it's that time of the year ladies and gentlemen. It's Softball time! ( Also baseball starts next week for Tech but I'll start that thread next Thursday). The 22nd ranked hokies start off the year in Conway South Carolina in the Kickin Chicken classic. They play 2 games tomorrow. 1st game is against Iowa at 12:45 PM EST and game 2 of the day is against Tournament host Coastal Carolina at 5:15 PM EST. Let's kick this season off with 2 wins ladiesπŸ˜ƒ

I don't really follow softball- what's the prognosis for this year's team?

El. Psy. Kongroo.

They went 47-11 last year and won the ACC regular season championship. They return 6 starters from last year's team 4 of which got voted pre season all acc. I'm thinking they finish around 40 wins this year and another Ncaa appearance. Next week we are in a really tough pre season where most of the field is ranked in the top 40

I didn't realize how well they did last year, I thought they had an offense problem. Good to know though

If you want level-headed opinions, don't go on a message board or sports forums

They did the year before last. They bumped up their Batting average from .242 to a .332 they went from 35 home runs to 97 and their team from .698 to over a 1.000.

They have 3 or 4 on the ACC preseason team. Got a good pitcher and that always seems key to a good season.

Kickin Chicken classic is a nice season starting tournament. I'll be taking my older girls to see them play a tournament at UNF later in February.

I urge people to find out when non revenue sports are playing near them and go and if you have kids take them. Most sports are free to watch, the players love having Hokies cheer away from Blacksburg that aren't their parents, the team often will stop and talk to kids and even take a picture.

Honest question, how well rated was this incoming freshmen class? Is there a recruiting resource for softball?

There is a website that ranks softball recruits. I think it's softball america

Not trying to be a debbie downer as we are off to a fast start, but didn't we have 2 aces last year and one transferred? And today we started a freshman?

I'm just trying to fill in the gaps and I know ya'll are the best to do it.

A really good freshman mind ya. Also I think Pete wanted to get the first game jitters outta her as well. I'm pretty sure we'll see Keely throw game two
