Women’s Softball Set to Kick Off Season

The women’s softball team is set to kick off their fall-ball season.

The team has been practicing every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday and are will hold their first scrimmage this Saturday October 2.

Freshman pitcher Rebecca Marmorato said the hard work they’ve been putting in during practice is preparing the team for their upcoming season.

“The team has been working a couple days a week to strengthen our pitching, infield, and outfield, while also trying to improve our communication on the field,” Marmorato said.

The women hope to have a better season this spring than they had the previous year and are looking forward to playing on their new field.

As of right now, the team is looking strong and there are many players looking strong ahead of the upcoming season, Lily Zimmerman, a freshman third baseman said.

“The team is looking pretty solid so far and we have a lot of new players to contribute to our upcoming season.”

When the team is not practicing, they are continuing to work the Buffalo Bills games in hopes to fundraise for their annual Myrtle Beach Spring Break trip where they will participate in a tournament with several other Division 3 softball teams.

“Hopefully all of these hours we’ve been fundraising will pay off and we will be able to experience the Myrtle Beach trip that was canceled because of Covid-19 last season,” freshman outfielder Gabrielle Jansen said.

As the softball fall-ball season comes to an end, the Men’s Baseball team is preparing for theirs to begin.

“We’re ending our fall-ball season on October 2nd with a scrimmage against Niagara County Community College. It will be exciting to see how it all unfolds,” Marmorato said.
