How he feels the girls played in their 10-game stretch in Florida...
"I know it didn't look like it but I thought all of our pitchers did a pretty good job. Our team just did not hit the ball very well behind our pitching and we struggled to string runs together at times. Also, we struggled to play defense and we are going to need that to come back. Things to work on but they are all fixable things, I'm proud of our girls."
Who's On Deck?
The Pomeroys will spend tomorrow and Sunday morning in Florida before catching a Southwest flight back to Indiana. SMWC will take the diamond again on Wednesday and Thursday of next week facing Brescia University and Oakland City University.
