Softball Season Gets Underway at SIC

March 5, 2017

The Southeastern Illinois College Lady Falcons will open their softball season on Thursday March 9 at John A Logan College in Carterville.  Games are scheduled for 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.

The Lady Falcons will then head for Myrtle Beach on Saturday, March 11 to begin play Monday, March 13 at the Cal Ripken Softball Experience, which involves five turfed, lighted softball fields and nine games in four days. 

The Falcons roster this season consists of eight freshmen and six sophomores.  The team is well-balanced in that several players can play many positions with five pitchers and plenty of strong bats in the lineup.  Defense seems to be a plus and only adds to the expectations of a strong showing this coming season.

Since 2014 the Lady Falcon softball team has steadily improved their program with more consistent play:  2014 - 16 wins, 8th place seed; 2015 - 20 wins, 7th place seed; 2016 - 24 wins, 5th place seed.

For the 2017 spring season, the Lady Falcons have added two transfer players from Division I softball programs.  Hanna Jones (Harrisburg) from UT Martin and Kylee Rock (Carterville) from the University of Illinois.
