#THE University of The Bahamas Mingoes women’s softball team picked up international experience during a South Florida tour against Fort Lauderdale University and Florida Memorial University recently.
#The Mingoes lost to The Florida Memorial Lions 11-1 and 12-4 on Friday and lost to Fort Lauderdale University Eagles 11-0 and 20-3 on Saturday.
#Head Coach Shane Albury said he felt the team could have done better over the weekend.
#“One of our weaknesses last year was pitching but we improved on pitching this year but our defence fell down terribly this year,” he said. “That eventually led to the lopsided losses.”
#He added that the offence was also a problem for the relatively young team.
#“We didn’t hit the ball as well as we did before either,” he said. “We struggled hitting the ball and we struggled on defence and that just leads to losses. It was disappointing because we know we can hit the ball and the pitchers were doing a great job but unfortunately physical errors and mental errors resulted in us not performing as best we could have.”
#Over the four games, Sophia Cartwright led the team with .650 batting average and Adonya Rolle led with .400 on base percentage.
#The Mingoes ended the 2022 NPSA season in third place but were knocked out in the playoffs.
