The East Georgia State College Lady Bobcats Softball Team will kick-off the Fall scrimmage season with a trip to Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday, September 17 to take on the College of Charleston.
The Bobcats will be led by returning pitchers, Cierra Kinlaw, Ashleigh Miles, Carly Forrester, Sophie kreese, and Destiny Boaz. In addition to a strong returning pitching staff from last season, Coach Chuck Wimberly has added three freshmen, Taylor Beigle, Jeslyn Olson, and Carlie Neal.
Returning to the field and at the plate for the Lady Bobcats will be sophomores Summer Alexander, Alyssa Barbrick, Bailey Davis and Sarah Atkins. Each of these girls played key roles in the Bobcats run at the final four in the conference last season.
The Bobcats will most definitely see how their new freshmen players and sophomore returners will play as they will jump on strong against thefour year program at the College of Charleston who competes against Appalachian State, the University of South Carolina, and Furman to name a few of the College of Charleston's scheduled opponents from last season.
Head Coach Chuck Wimberly commented about the start of the Fall scrimmage season and playing against College of Charleston right out the gate.
"We have had a tremendous start to our Fall practice and scrimmage season. We have the most talented group of softball players that I have seen at EGSC with power hitters, speed in the outfield, and great fielding and arm strength at all positions. Playing against great competition in these fall scrimmages will only help us to up our game to the next level and prepare ourselves for competing for a championship in the Spring. I believe that you only get better by playing great competition, for it helps you as a program to see your faults and work on them, and it most definitely helps your players raise their game by playing against great competition."
Wimberly added, "it is an exciting time for our softball program, and I cannot wait to see how we compete against College of Charleston right out the gate and on the road. It will be a tremendous learning experience for all of our Lady Bobcats, and I cannot express how excited we are to be having the opportunity to scrimmage against such a great opponent in College of Charleston."
