    WT managed to sweep always troublesome Cameron yesterday. The second game was a blowout.

    I always worry when we play them. This game, which including pitching by 3 of our finest pitchers, always comes to mind when it's time to play Cameron.

      Boy howdy, that first game with Okie Christian was HORRIBLE. Lose a 5-4 lead into the 7th and lose 8-5. 8 errors and 5 unearned runs. Lady Buffs looked like a silent movie slapstick comedy with several Buster Keatons in the field. Wow!

            Pretty good weekend for us. 3-1 at UT-Tyler and ETSU.


            With 10 games to go, 7 teams are with 2 games of first place. At least one good LSC squad is going to get left out of regionals.

              Your last ten games are against the bottom of the LSC. You can get healthy real quick.

                That's an accurate description. The infield seems clueless and even Salzman seems lost at times. Yes it was windy, but WT trains in that. OCU was not fazed by it at all.

                I had to turn off the second game, which was even worse.

                Part of the problem is Coach Mook has decided Guerike is not going to cut it as short stop, so he moved her to 2nd. Against Cameron, Johnson played short stop and it worked out okay, but today it was freshman Warren, who understandably had problems in her first start. Johnson didn't play today, I hope she is ok.

                Our primary catcher, from D1 ACU, needs to drop to D3. She is a big powerful girl who is not especially good at catcher (2 errors in game 1) and is only hitting .222 (conference). In fact 7 of the errors in game 1 were in the infield, including 2 by Guerike who is now hitting below .200 (conference). She had all 3 errors in game 2. Geidel who has been an outfielder, played some catcher this weekend, did well against Cameron, but not so well today. Still her conference average is .375, even better than Sanchez's (.333 conference) who has been oddly used less at catcher recently.

                Last year around this time, WT was swept by OCU, but afterward went 21-2 and won it all. Can they do it again? It's very hard to repeat, and we will have to have much better performances from the infield. Is Mook the right guy? Absolutely.

                  Lady Buffs are currently 8th in LSC. Fortunately some easier (let's hope) teams are upcoming. Last year the top 8 made the LSC tourney. So they can't afford many losses to the remaining teams on the schedule. Would hate to see them drop in the standings to one of them and not make the LSC tourney. Go Lady Buffs!

                    WT had a good weekend, with Heidi picking up her first perfect game on Saturday. The second game against MSU required a late rally to win. TWU was easy prey yesterday, and both teams combined have won only 15 games. WT’s infield is still making too many mistakes to go very far in the playoffs.

                      The stats say it all for the Lady Buffs. 5th in hitting, 8th in pitching, 11th in fielding. I reckon Mook will make some roster changes next year. It looks like he missed on a few kids. Catcher, 2nd, ss, and need for more production from the bottom of the line-up.

                        IMHO, The future is bright for the Lady Buffs. #27 Guericke looks real good at 2nd Base, hitting needs to improve, I would leave her there. #24 Warren played a good shortstop this weekend. I like #10 our left-handed catcher. (Leah Deaver I think) Pitching will be stronger with a healthy Lair in addition to Vortherms, Wilson, and Parrish. This is still a very young team. (had one senior) This season was a maturation process.

                          The pitching is better than the stats show. Emilee pitched 5 innings yesterday and gave up 4 runs, but 3 of those were unearned (fielding issues). When Johnson recovers that will help but Warren has been a pleasant surprise at SS. Guerike needs to hit better but does look a lot better at second.

                          Sydney may be a senior in the classroom but still has 1 or 2 years of eligibility. Maggie Geidel is the catcher for Emilee. She broke her leg last year and is somewhat heavier. She’s hitting. So is Shy, but not Booth. So the 2 catchers hitting are NAIA recruits, the other came from D1, as did Guerike.

                          Yes it’s a young team with a bright future. Mook IS the man. Whether he can fix the fielding in a couple of weeks remains to be seen.

                          3 of the 4 perfect games pitched by WT pitchers have been in the Mook era.

                            The last #10 we had was Kim Lecompte. Geidel wears 0 and Shy wears 18.

                              What are the LSC Softball Standings?

                              I gather since there are no calls for the death of a coach or his/her exile from the United States, WT must be at or near the top?
