Mount Mary College’s Blue Angels softball team plays aggressively despite loses.

Wisconsin’s crazy spring weather gets on everyone’s nerves.With unpredictable changes in temperature and seemingly endless rain, it’s hard for Wisconsinites to get outdoors.

For the Mount Mary College softball team, this has been a problem.

Of the Blue Angels’ scheduled 14 double-headers, the team has only suited up four times for competition, putting them in jeopardy of missing the National Collegiate Athletic Association minimum game require- ment of 24 competitions.

When the weather did play nice, the Blue Angels squad lost all match-ups to extremely talented opponents.

With several new faces on the team, the Blue Angels took time to get adjusted to new players, players out of their normal positions and new coaches and their style of coaching.

With the rest of the season crammed into the last two weeks of the semester before finals, the team hopes to improve and get ready for the offseason.

“Strike Out for Cancer”

The softball team will conclude its season with a “strike Out for Cancer” game for breast cancer awareness at the Milwaukee school of Engineering.

In the weeks leading up to the game, the Blue Angels are selling pink t-shirts in order to raise money to donate to the Susan G. Kumen for the Cure Foundation.

Those looking to buy shirts ($10) to support the cause may still do so while supplies last. Contact any one of the softball ladies or stop in at Athletic Director Michelle Guyant-Holloway’s office to pick up a shirt.
