Softball is not a soft sport, and this season the Rambelle softball team intends to prove that statement.

Last season the Belles went to the NCAA Division II South Central Tournament and finished their season with a 6-7 loss against West Texas A&M University. Their overall win/loss/tie record was 3317-1, but the Belles plan on bettering themselves both as a team and individuals.

“It’s going to be exciting to watch them play, win or lose their going to give it everything they got,” Head Coach Travis Scott said. “Their team chemistry right now is amazing.”

The Belles had a majority of their players return and recruited a few players to fill those empty spots.

Returning junior catcher and infielder Katlyn Herzog has faith that the Belles will do well this season.

“I am looking forward to us winning a conference tournament and winning the conference,” Herzog said.

Scott is also ready for the upcoming George McCorkle Challenge on Feb. 5.

“We are excited about hosting the George McCorkle Challenge again,” Scott said. “We have three other teams coming in that we feel are going to make it a quality tournament.”

Texas A&M International, Adams State University and Northwestern Oklahoma State University will be traveling to ASU to face the Belles on their home field in the first official tournament of the 2016 season. None of these teams are in the same conference and Scott anticipates some good games.

“We know that we have our work cut out for us from game one,” Scott said. “I think [fans] are going to see a team that’s going to come out and play hard every day.”

The first game in the George McCorkle Challenge will be the Belles against Texas A&M International at 12:45 p.m. At 3:15 p.m. on Feb. 5, the Belles will also take on Northwestern Oklahoma State University.

Lone Star Conference games will start on Feb. 26 against the Texas A&MKingsville University Javelinas. The Belles have 21 days from their first game to prepare for conference play.
