"Our upper classmen played really well against much older four-year college players at 22 and 23 years old with four-year and five-year starters. Our freshmen are finding their way with on the job training and learning a lot about the speed of college softball," said Head Coach Chuck Wimberly after the scrimmages.
Wimberly added," it was great to see our junior college athletes compete and win scrimmages against a four-year program with players three to four years older and more experienced than us. It really proves how good of quality athletes we have at our college and in our program at this time."
