MC Scots Softball season is starting off strong

Posted by on Mar 8, 2017 in Feature Slider, Sports | 0 comments

The MC Scots Softball team has kicked off one of the best starts in MC history. The ladies came flying out of the gate, and that has brought them to a current record of 9-3. This is the best start the team has ever had under head coach Leah Kelley. The Lady Scots played two doubleheaders with two games on both Feb. 24 and Feb. 25. The first day had the team going to Cary, North Carolina for the Grand Slam Tournament to face N.C. Wesleyan, followed by a match-up against William Peace. The first game looked as though the outcome would be different due to the hot start of the Scots. The active bats and errors made by N.C. Wesleyan led to an early 4-0 lead in the first three innings. The momentum seemed to flip around the...

The MC Scots softball team comes into the 2017 season looking to capitalize on where they left off in 2016. The team finished 25-17 last season, losing in the USA South Tournament to Averett University and Ferrum College, respectively. The main focus of the off-season was to finish what was started. Looking at their pre-season schedule, the Lady Scots are off to achieving their goal with little stutter-steps in between. The ladies traveled to Memphis, Tenn. for a four game tournament against two teams that they will not see during their regular season competition. They competed against Westminister College and Rhodes College. The offense came out strong and surprised Westminister. The ball jumped off the bats all the way from the first pitch to the time the last out was made. The Scots won three of the four games,...

Until Next Time: Recap of Volleyball Season

Coming off a previous eighteen-win season, head coach Kandis Schram looked to come into the 2016 campaign and build off what her 2015 Lady Scots accomplished. What Schram got instead was another 18-win season, far superseding preseason expectations. The immediate dominance of players, like freshman right side hitter Brianne Sidner, and continued consistency of the rest of the team got the Lady Scots back into the post season, to no one in the USA South Conference’s surprise. However, a surprise instead came from the order in which the games were won. The season did not kick off how most were expecting. Schram’s team stumbled initially out of the gate, dropping three consecutive matches after winning the home opener against Tennessee Wesleyan College. The offense would begin to show small flaws in fluidity and rhythm, which led to some of...
