UGF Softball Ready for Conference Season

Posted: Updated:

The Argos softball team has been on break after finishing up their non-conference schedule. UGF is 12-9 thus far and is using the break to get ready for Frontier/North Star conference play.

Head Coach Joey Egan,"we had our preseason games and got to do an analysis on our team and figure out what we need to work on. These last 3 weeks we've been going back and everyone is improving on a couple of things so we can head into our conference games very strong."

Heading into the Frontier/North Star Conference, the Argos will look to build upon last season where they finished in 2nd place and came up just short of making it to nationals.

"We definitely have goals to go to the national tournament and do better than we did last year," said Egan.

Sophomore 2B, Regan Rucks, "we would like to win conference and be national champs, for sure. One of our mindsets is to stay focused and just have our leaders continue to push us to stay focused and stay determined."

If UGF is going to win and make the national tournament, they'll need to continue to play consistent softball and win every inning.

Sophomore SS, Mindy Larson, "our defense is really great and I think it's something that's awesome but we still need to work on our hitting and staying consistent throughout the games and into the next game and so on."

The Argos will resume their season and open their conference schedule next Saturday, in Dickinson, North Dakota where they will play Dickinson State.
