Owls off to a tough start at 0-5…especially considering the competition.

Really? We lost to A&M and Bethune Cookman?

Wow at giving up more than 8 runs a game against some "marginal" competition, sounds like those pitchers better get more arc on the ball - oh, I forgot, they are supposed to be playing fast pitch!

FAU picked up their first win on the year 6-2 over Wright State in game two on Friday night.

Florida Atlantic scored the contest's first two runs two in the top of the first. Wright State would answer with one in the bottom half of the first two innings but were held scoreless the remaining five frames by freshman Paige Pender, who picked up her first collegiate win.

The Owls (1-6) will return to play on Saturday at 6:00 p.m when they take on Michigan in the first of two games. The second opponent will be Maryland.

Errors were costly once again as the Owls (1-8) dropped both games one Saturday losing 2-0 to Michigan, and 4-1 to Maryland.

Florida Atlantic outhit the Wolverines (7-1) overall 5-3, but two third inning errors led to the game's only runs.

In the nightcap, the Owls offense struggled, managing just one hit off the bat of Stephanie Cal. The Terrapins (3-1) didn't fair much better, but were able to cash in on just three hits due to 2nd, 4th, and 5th inning miscues by the home team.

The Owls wrap up action in the FAU Kick-Off Classic tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. against Long Island.

Re: 2012 FAU Softball Schedule

We have not been a strong team since the A-Sun days but this is pretty sad this year. Fundamentals ladies, that or sit, that is the ONLY message that needs to be sent to the starters. same in every sport, you don't produce you sit! If the starters don't beleive in this than they will not improve as there is no incentive to! Wow, this has been the same problem in every sport this year has'nt it? Except baseball - they have played nearly perfect in their 2 game (excuse me - THEIR TWO WINS AT ALABAMA!).

The Owls drop their last contest of the FAU Kick-Off Classic to Long Island University 7-2 on Sunday.

The Blackbirds took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first before Florida Atlantic (1-9) answered the bottom half of the frame with two runs to take control.

However, in thematic fashion as of late, FAU would fall prey in the third inning to three two-out errors which plated six unearned Long Island runs.

Stephanie Cal had two hits and and a RBI to lead the Owls offensively.

The team returns to action next weekend when hosting Auburn, Florida A&M, FIU, Loyola Marymount, Michigan State and Tulsa in the Strike Out for Cancer Tournament.

Damn - lose 2-7 to WHO? On our own turf!

Sounds like softball needs to BIG TIME up the recruiting in softball which is extremely hard for me to grap as one sport which was strong if not dominant at FAU through the years had been softball.

But so far this year we are being dominated and embarassed by, I have to say in all honesty, below average mid-level teams, teams we would NEVER have lost to and have many times mercy ruled in the past. This is sad, especially in light of the early season success Baseball is having.

C'mon ladies - STEP IT UP, NOW!
