HIGH POINT, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College softball team was selected to finish eighth in the Conference Carolinas Preseason Coaches' Poll Friday afternoon. Sarah Tucker, Kara Cunningham and Noel Cassidy were tabbed as players to watch for the Bobcats this season.
Lees-McRae is coming off a 15-win season in 2017, which was the program's highest win total since 2011 when the team won 26 games. LMC will have a wealth of experience returning to the field in 2018 with 12 players back from last season. The Bobcats will also welcome eight newcomers to the squad this spring in hopes of surpassing that 15-win season from 2017.
The Bobcats will open the season on February 3rd when they travel to Jefferson City, Tenn. to take on Carson-Newman in a non-conference twin bill. The doubleheader is set for a 1 p.m. first pitch.
