Softball team racks up accolades amid season of marked improvement

The Ursinus College softball team has made vast improvements so far this season, especially on the offensive side of the ball.

The Bears’ bats have already scored more runs (140) than they did last year (129), and they still have 12 games left this season. In addition, they’re hitting .313 as a team.

“We have really focused on executing the small things,” senior shortstop Kayla Quinn said.

Quinn has been a big contributor to the team’s offensive production, batting .300 with two home runs and 20 RBI this year, while hitting in the fourth spot in the batting order for most games. Not to mention, she also recorded her 100th career hit earlier this season.

“We know that none of us are going to hit a home run every time up, so we focus on getting on base, bunting or hitting them over, then finding a way to get them in. Knowing who we are and being confident in our abilities has truly helped us be successful,” Quinn said.

This approach at the plate has helped some Bears record impressive individual accolades. Sophomore catcher Amanda Ladzinski earned Centennial Conference player of the week for her 3-3 performance at the plate against Gettysburg, in the midst of a sweep of the Bullets last Saturday. And most recently, senior Sammi Donato recorded her 100th career hit against Swarthmore last Tuesday.

know my teammates will field any ball that comes to them! I have the utmost confidence in the girls behind me.”

Along with their slugging at the plate, the Bears have gotten plenty of help on the mound from junior Jen Hammons, a recent recipient of the Centennial Conference pitcher of the week award, and sophomore two-way player Morgan Comfort.

Hammons has completely broken out for her junior campaign, after showing promise in her first two seasons at the collegiate level. Over her first 15 appearances (13 starts), she sports a career-low 3.09 ERA over career-high 74.2 innings pitched.

“Knowing my offense can pick me up if I give up a run
is huge” Comfort said, who’s posting a 2.93 ERA to make a dangerous 1-2 combo in the Ursinus rotation.

“However, on the mound, I think my confidence really
stems from the fact that I know my teammates will field any ball that comes to them! I have the utmost confidence in the girls behind me” Comfort said.

When she’s not in the circle, Comfort has been stellar with the bat, posting a .411 average while also playing center field for the Bears.

With just eight conference games left, the Bears are in the playoff hunt as they currently sit at 5th in the conference standings with a 3-4 record.

“With the conference being as close as it is this year, every game counts, so we expect everyone to show up like it’s a playoff game every time,” Quinn said.

“In general, every game to us is one we have to win. We
aren’t really focusing on the ‘we must win’ mindset, it’s more of a ‘let’s keep doing what we’re doing’ sort of mindset because we’ve been really successful when we play our game,” Comfort said.

The Bears will have a doubleheader against Moravian at
home this Thursday, and a CC showdown at Washington College on Saturday.
