Blogging from the Berm: Dylan Supak
BATON ROUGE – Dylan Supak checks in with this week’s edition of “Blogging from the Berm,” as the No. 22 LSU softball team returns to the road to square off versus No. 10 Tennessee over the weekend at Lee Stadium.
Supak has produced hits in 11 of her 25 starts on the season. She is tied for fourth on the team with 11 RBIs and her two-run single in LSU’s eight-run third inning during the Mississippi State opener proved to be the game-winner.
All three games of the Tennessee series will have live audio and live stats inside the Geaux Zone on LSUsports.net. The game also will be carried live Country Legends 104.9 FM in the Baton Rouge area with Patrick Wright and Matt Dunaway on the broadcast.
The final two games of the series will be televised by ESPN with Beth Mowins and Jessica Mendoza set to call the action. Both television games also are available on ESPN3.com.
Fans also can follow every pitch of LSU softball this season via live in-game updates on LSU softball’s social media outlets at www.Facebook.com/lsusoftball and @lsu_softball on Twitter.
“Hey Tiger Fans,
As the weeks in April progress, so does our time on the field and amount of work we have to put in. Outworking our opponents is part of the foundation of this team and something that we pride ourselves in. Coach Torina always says that every game is a battle, and we as a team will scratch and claw until the end. With Top 25 teams like Tennessee, Florida State, Florida and Georgia ahead of us, I am confident that we will battle it out to the end and come away with some wins!
Coming away with a win at Alabama, something that hasn’t been done in our program for a long time, has shown us how talented we are as a team. It also has taught us how we can beat anyone in any atmosphere. After our win Saturday night, we were sent to our rooms immediately and didn’t know what to think of it. Turns out the coaching staff had put together an Easter themed scavenger hunt all around the hotel. From the laundry room to the pool, a series of obstacles stood between us and the coveted first place prize. I’m proud to say that my roommate, Tammy Wray, and I came away with the first place prize of a giant chocolate bunny and an Easter egg full of bubble gum! Needless to say, an Easter spent with the Tiger family was definitely a success.
We’re so excited to make the trip to Knoxville to take on the Lady Vols. Being a SEC Eastern Division opponent and ranked No. 10 in the nation, we will certainly have our work cut out for us. Like Tuscaloosa, we will be playing in another hostile atmosphere.
Even though it’s Spring Break, we’ve been taking advantage of the time away from school and putting the time in at the field in preparation for the weekend. So come out and join us if you can! If not, you can put your TV on ESPN Saturday at 11:00 a.m. and Sunday at 3:00 p.m. central time.
After being on the road for a while, it’s always good to come home! Luckily, we get our wish next week with five home games. I think I can speak for everyone and say that we can’t wait to be back under the lights of Tiger Park. Our facilities are second to none, however the place really comes alive when our amazing fans fill it with their love and support. We appreciate everything that y’all do for us and continue to look forward to seeing you at the games.
We have two mid-week games, Tuesday against McNeese State and Wednesday versus Florida State, both at 6:00 p.m. Then, Ole Miss comes to town for our weekend series. We’re so excited for the inaugural “Strikeout Ovarian Cancer” game next Saturday! This game runs deeper than the teal color on our jerseys because ovarian cancer hits close to home for our team. So come out and support the cause!
As my freshman year winds down, I look back on so many great memories and friendships both on and off the field. From pitching to base running, we are doing things at such a high performance level. Something that contributes a great amount to all these things is team chemistry. I have never played on a team that cares for one another the way my fellow tigers do, and that’s one thing that can’t be taught.
I’m truly blessed to be apart of such a wonderful family here at LSU that extends throughout the entire university.
