Softball Riding Nine Game Winning Streak

March 29, 2010

The Lady Cardinals softball team is continuing its winning ways. They are currently boasting a nine game winning streak with recent double header wins over Mary Baldwin, Mary Washington, and Frostburg State. In these games, the Lady Cardinals have out scored their opponents by a combined score of 42 – 8.

The team is lead by an outstanding senior class which includes pitcher Stacie Goddard, infielder Megan Covert, and outfielder Kerry Convery. Along with a great senior class, the team also has phenomenal underclassman, which includes recently named Conference Rookie of the Year, Sophamore Megan Rizzie.

“This is a completely different team. We have more depth than we did last year, and we have players that are stepping up their game,” said senior Megan Covert when asked what the biggest difference was between this year and last.

The team is lead by head coach Bruce McConkey. In his eighth year of coaching, McConkey is looking to continue his winning ways of last year in which the Cardinals made it to the Landmark Conference
Championship. In his eight years, Coach McConkey has developed the program into one of the best teams in the conference. In 2007, he coached the Cardinals to the CAC Championship, and in 2006 he managed the Cardinals to a program best-20 games while leading the country in doubles per game.

After a few tough exhibition games during a spring break tournament in
Kissimmee, Florida, the Cardinals are now in the swing of the regular season. When a number of the players were asked what they expected to come out of the season, all replied the same way: “Home field advantage for the conference tournament, and a conference championship.”
