I guess it is time to turn the page from the 2023 season to the upcoming 2024 season.
Bummed out about losing our hitting coach. Funny that she’s going to a school that has an opposite approach to offense than we employed here. I’ll be interested in seeing who her replacment here is.
A few Summer League All Stars to note:
Pitchers Brooke Bowling and Lena Elkins named to the Music City League All Star Game.
Shortstop Savannah Nguyen was named to Florida Gulf Coast League All Star Game. She also played against 49er Boo Vannoy in a game vs the Florida Vibe on Sunday.
In recent years, the Charlotte 49ers have been one of the best mid-major programs in the country, and just recently made their first NCAA Tournament appearance. Despite a Regional round departure, the 49ers showed their grit and determination for more success in the future.
With top offensive contributors Kassidy Krupit and Bailey Vannoy graduating, Sam Gress and Lena Elkins in the circle look to lead their team during the 2024 season. Gress owns a 1.91 ERA from the 2023 season after pitching 227.1 innings. After playing a grueling schedule all year long, the 49ers had notable wins over Georgia, Arizona State and Virginia Tech in 2023.
Welcome Katie !
Great addition to an already great program !
More Ashley magic !
Lena Elkins named to Team East that will play a series of games vs the pro team Florida Vibe.
Softball is adding a position to the coaching staff.
I brief look through the roster pages: 5 schools in the AAC have a Director of Softball Ops position listed, 5 do not.
Yeah, that should help our ace.
Thanks for posting this. I really like the rule change to nullify obstruction if the runner would have been clearly out. Too bad this wasn’t in effect our last game against Duke. At least, we can hope the rules makers were made aware of the need for a change as a result of that play.
If hit-by-pitch is now reviewable, in addition to the pitching rule change, how is North Texas going figure out how to cheat when they play in Denton? I say these changes are unfair to them!
I love any player who calls us her dream school. Nice!
“If you had told me a year ago that I would be graduating early and going to Charlotte, I would have laughed in your face,” Blackwell said. “This has happened in the course of like six days. From graduating to signing. It’s insane. It’s just a whole bunch of mixed emotions, but I’m really excited to be at Charlotte.”
clt says we are charlotte, that is what the students call us
Fall schedule looks to be very challenging.
