Lady Royals World Series Bound!

For the first time in program history, the Ecclesia Lady Royals Softball team has earned a trip to the NCCAA World Series! After finishing 3rd in Regionals the Softball team has received an at-large bid to play in the World Series in Virginia.

The Lady Royals finished the regular season with a 13-15 record. This was a tremendous improvement on last season in which they won just one game all year in their final game of the season. Without a lot of depth, and having to battle a few injuries throughout the year, this group of young women was able to fight through the adversity and put together a successful season.
At the plate the Lady Royals have been strong, with five players batting above .300 on the season. It is a balanced lineup with offensive production capable of coming from any spot. On the mound the Ecclesia staff has a 4.40 ERA, and the defense has a .930 fielding percentage behind those pitchers.
"We are extremely excited for this opportunity to compete in the World Series! The girls have put in a lot of work, and I am proud of what they have accomplished this season. They've earned this bid, and we look forward to playing" said Coach Cassie Long.
We are very excited for the ladies who have worked hard for this opportunity, and look forward to cheering them on as they continue to compete in the playoffs! The World Series begins with pool play on Wednesday May 15th and ends with the championship game Friday May 17th. Go Royals!
