Fell 8-7 to Washington. UAB was down 7-1 and fought back to tie it in the 7th. Washington had a walkoff single on a 2-2 count with 2 outs. This team is going to be good!

Early season tournament, away from home and get down 6-0 in the first to #1, it would be easy to fold the tent. These ladies have made some noise this weekend

They ended up winning 4 out of 5 games and had Washington tied late in the game.
Must admit I am surprised at the success shown so far.

I'm old and losing my mind more and more as we go so I have to ask this -
Is this the coach's first season or his second?

Regardless, one has to wonder why we stagnated after the big run in the NCAA tournament a few years back.

30 runs in 5 games, which includes a decent Georgia Tech team and the #1 team in the country. By comparison, we scored 218 runs in 50 games last year.

Awesome start. Nearly upset the #1 team in the country in the one loss.

I question why the previous coach (& the previous one) weren't able to get the job done anymore.
Seems like they couldn't get local players to sign with the program.

Because the coaches before had to play at a dump of a field a mile off campus with police escorts to watch over them during practice and games. Hard to recruit anyone to play some place like that.
The new on campus field is a million times better than where they have come from. Amazing that marla was able to do what she did with what the school gave her at that time.

UAB Softball has been playing in the present stadium since 2010, when Marla Townsend was coach. The two coaches between when Marla got canned for being loyal to UAB and the current coach never had to deal with the George Ward Park issues.

No, the softball field just got redone 2-3 years ago. It’s no longer two 15 foot wide bleachers. It’s an actual stadium. Which is why UA has agreed to do home and homes on the regular

A million bucks well spent. Remember when hoops spent 50k to go to the CBI?

Basically after Leah Streetman graduated we have not had any big type success.

And yes, the Mary Bower's Softball Field has been in place for a few years for Marla and whoever the others may have been.

Even so, if they could get it done with Streetman and others there's no reason why is shouldn't have been able to continue at a higher level.

This is why Koalitis' success this season is somewhat stunning so far.

He was at South Alabama when they were in the top 25 and we were making our deep postseason runs. Came from a World Series competing Oregon team too. That’s probably why we have same Cali girls on the squad, too.

Think we have 2 from AU, 1 from ole miss and miss state

Can’t remember the other ace we had when Streetman was here, but her sister was at South Alabama at the same time.

We will see I guess if he can recruit locally and/or if it is needed.
