Blog: Practice Report 1/27

| No TrackBacks

The University of Minnesota softball team has nearly two weeks of practice under their belts, and head coach Jessica Allister is pleased with what she has seen thus far.

"Practice has been going really, really well," said head coach Jessica Allister. "I am impressed with the condition of the girls, which shows they trained over break and put in a lot of work. Offensively, we have made huge strides both with our returners and newcomers. I am excited to put the team against our pitchers in the coming days and see how they do."

The Gophers have just over two weeks of practice remaining before their first contest at the SportCo Kickoff Classic in Las Vegas, Nev. against host UNLV, but Allister hopes to have her team ready for the Rebels by simulating a few scrimmages in the coming weeks.

"We are going to start try and scrimmage a little more this January and early February than we did last year. I want to get the girls against some live pitching, so when we take the field in Las Vegas, we will have a couple games, so to say, under our belts."

Currently, the team is practicing in the Gibson-Nagurski Indoor Facility, but the team will make a few trips down to the Metrodome to get a feel for a full field.

"We are very lucky to have an indoor facility like this to practice in, and we are able to do everything that we need to do in preparation for the season. We also will make a few trips down to the Metrodome, so we can get a full field experience."
