Hokies softball 2021 season

It's that time of year again. Softball is back! And for your number 15/16th ranked hokies. They are looking to build on what I think was gonna be a fantastic year for the ladies last year until covid cancelled the rest of the 2020 season๐Ÿ˜”. But imo this could be an even better year for the hokies.
Let's talk about the pitching staff.
If anyone is familiar with the hokie softball team than you know the name Keely Rochard. If not let me tell y'all about her. Last season during the covid shorten season Rochard posted a 15-3 record with a 1.52 ERA and a amazing 183 strikeouts in 120 innings๐Ÿ‘€. She was named softball America first team All American for her efforts. Behind Keley is a battle for pitcher No.2 between Hewitt and True Freshmens Mackenzie Osbourne of Richlands VA and Ivy Rosenberry of Winchester Va. I expect it to be Hewitt but VTChip a big time hokie supported over on TSL says that Hewitt has been dealing with injuries throughout the off season so one of the freshman will probably have too step up early in the season. Now on to the fielders/batters for the hokies. So when the season ended the hokies were batting a team avg of .324 and scoring a average of 7 runs a game which was leading the ACC. Well the good news is the hokies return 8 players who were batting over .274 and the addition of Cana Davis who missed last year due to injury. They are without Lattin who graduated and Maddi Banks who transfered to Ole miss but the Hokies brought in some really good replacements in True Freshman Cameron Fagan who was the number 13 recuirt in the country (not surprising since she comes from a super Atheletic family where her 2 sisters played big time college softball as well) and sophomore transfer from Michigan Morgan Overaitis and True Freshman Addy Greene. The hokies Kick off the season down in Kennesaw GA to face the Kennesaw State Owls (where Pete D'Armour formerly was the head coach before taking the Tech job) this weekend in a 3 game series starting Saturday with a doubleheader. I'll be on the thread giving inning by inning updates every game๐Ÿค˜until then GO HOKIES!!

Well the ACC is barely having non conference games so that factor it into it. Also our ACC pod is FSU and Clemson this year and they wanted the games to be a neutral field games

Sorry about not getting the preview up last night. I got heavily invested into Minecraft๐Ÿ˜‚. So Clemson is in year 2 of its program and their off to 2-0 record this season with a run rule victory over Illinois State and a 4-3 win over North Florida before the rest of the tournament got cancelled. I say if Keely pitches all 3 games the hokies sweep the series but I highly doubt she does so my prediction for series is hokies winning 2 out of 3 games

8-0 but I need a rules refresher as I didn't understand the 2nd out in the third where she hit it off the plate and it kicked into fair ground.

All four bases are considered fair territory

So did it hit her after it hit the plate? If it did, I missed it but they called her out and sent the runners back to the original bases.

That was I how I understood the call. Can't say it was correct, but that is what i thought the call was

Single camera angle from behind the plate didn't help.

I tried to tune in for a bit, but that broadcast was just too hard to watch.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Hokies win 6-0, Keely had nine strikeouts in the one hitter to help the Hokies win their first series over FSU since 2011. Chavez helped the offense with her 4th homerun on the season. Fagan also added a three run Homer to the effort.

Love this. I hated not to get to see it, though I admittedly chose to watch the baseball game instead.
