Judson softball came home from Georgia winners earlier this week!
The Lady Eagles split with both Emmanuel College and Agnes Scott College. Tuesday afternoon, after a 4 hour drive to Atlanta (and the vans getting a little lost) we arrived in Decatur, Ga. We lost the first game, but the second game against Agnes Scott we showed the Scotties what Judson softball is all about! After the games, we drove an hour north to Commerce, Ga. It was a late night getting to the hotel, but road trips like these are always the most fun! Tori, Whitney, and I shared a room and had a blast talking and sharing the weekly gossip!
The next morning, thankfully, was a not so early one. We left the hotel about 11 a.m. and headed to Franklin Springs, Ga. FYI: Emmanuel College is kind of in the middle of nowhere, but I go to Judson and I have no idea why I'm complaining about this! Once again, they beat us in the first game pretty badly actually. The second game, however, was a different story! We held them to a 4-1 victory!
The much looked forward to road trip was a successful one in bringing us closer together as a team. With our first home game this Saturday, the much needed bonding will do us some good. We had a really great practice yesterday and I'm expecting another good one today. Everyone is sore and tired from our trip but should be rested up by game time. We play at 1 and 3 p.m. on Saturday, March 27th against Belhaven. It should be a pretty tough game, so Coach Jones says.
Hopefully we'll have the home field advantage and have a lot of fan support! So that means everyone needs to come out and cheer us on!!! Go Eagles!!!
