Spring is a time for a fresh start, and nowhere is that moretrue than with the NYIT BearsSoftball team, who hopes to make a comeback this year after a devastating 2011 season.

 

The team suffered many injuries last season, which lead to disappointing results in the East Coast Conference. The team finished the 2011 season with an overall record of 5-35 and went 3-25 in conference play. The ladies finished in sixth place overall with 20 points. Their final games were against Bridgeport University. During their first game against Bridgeport University, Bridgeport won with the score of 7-2. The second game also had an end result of Bridgeport winning with a final score of 11-6. Head coach Steve Christianson believes that the team can rank fourth place or even better, which is what the Bears have ranked in the past. “In the seven years that I have been year, 2011 was the only year that the team wasn’t able to reach fourth place or better”, said Head Coach Steve Christianson.

 

For the 2012 season Coach Christianson has rebuilt the team, so the past won’t happen again. “The team has a strong foundation and an amazing defense this year. The team is self-disciplined and does things the correct way”, said Christianson.

 

There are many starting players that are part of the NYIT softball team. Some talent that is returning from last year is senior pitcher Natasha Milosevich and senior catcher Melina Trujilo. A few new faces on the team are infielder Lindsay Weldon and outfielder Nicole Marquez. They reconstructed a team that is able to play together and has the skills that are needed to win. “We rebuilt the program with new players and a team that can compete”, said Christianson.

 

Not only does the team know that the 2012 season will bring more success than last year, but they have the confidence to back it up. “The team has a lot of new players, we’re ready to get to know each other and play together”, said Mackenzie Jones, one of the new catchers this season. Natasha Milosevich also noticed a difference in how the team is built for this season. “We’re looking to come out this season. We have a good defense and offense.”

 

After a deficit in players last season, the team is ready to accomplish their goals and show off their true talent. For a complete schedule to watch the ladies play, visit their team page on www.nyit.edu/athletics.
