Softball Pegged 2nd in Pre-Season Poll


Softball Pegged 2nd in Pre-Season Poll

The Florida Atlantic University softball team was predicted to finish second in the Sun Belt Conference (SBC) by a poll of league coaches.

The University of Louisiana-Lafayette, who advanced to the 2008 Women’s College World Series, was the unanimous pick to repeat as SBC champions, followed by FAU, Troy University, FIU, and the University of North Texas. Middle Tennessee State University, Western Kentucky University, the University of Louisiana-Monroe, and the University of South Alabama rounded out the poll.

FAU junior shortstop Blair Bodenmiller (Orlando, FL/Dr. Phillips HS) was named a preseason All-Sun Belt selection. Bodenmiller hit .281 in SBC play in 2008 and was named to the preseason team despite missing six conference games due to injury.

The Owls start the 2009 season on Friday, February 6 at 6 p.m. when they host the University of Massachusetts as part of the FAU Kick-Off Classic at FAU Stadium, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus.
