The Rambelles are kicking off their season at the St. Mary’s Invitational in San Antonio playing Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
There are eight returners this season and it makes the team mesh really well together, sophomore Lanie Robinson said.
“The team chemistry is awesome,” Robinson said. “The new girls aren’t really new girls. It doesn’t feel like they are new anymore. They are a part of the family.”
The Rambelles began practicing in January and have been counting down the days to their season opening.
“I think we look really good,” Head Coach Travis Scott said. “At times we started five freshmen last year and that experience that they gained last year is going to pay off big.”
Even though the team is playing away, Robinson said they will play just as good away as they do at home.
“[Playing away] is definitely not as fun because we don’t have the crowd behind us but we still enjoy playing and traveling together,” sophomore Ambra Hill said. “It is a bonding experience for us.”
Scott said there is good team depth and speed allowing the Rambelles to look good in all aspects of the game.
“We have been putting in a really good amount of work and we are ready to play,” Robinson said.
The $600,000 softball turf project was completed in November and there will be a ribbon cutting Friday, Jan. 31.
