“Hey Tiger Fans,
Huey coming to you from the Bluegrass as the regular season finishes up. As you all know, last weekend we honored our eight seniors. What an impact they’ve made on this program! With such diverse personalities, each and every one of them has truly shown what it’s like to be a fantastic role model on and off the field. There were many, many tears shed on Sunday as they said their goodbyes, but we all know how great they are and that they are on to bigger and better things.
This weekend we are playing a very talented Kentucky team. They have already secured a place in the SEC Tournament, and they are still fighting for to become eligible for a berth in Regionals. Next Wednesday, we will be trekking back to Tuscaloosa for the SEC tournament. I have no doubt in my mind that if we play the way we are capable of, and play LSU softball, we will return to Baton Rouge with our new coaching staff’s first SEC championship in the Purple and Gold.
Everyone knows how busy we are with the end of the season coming up, but finals are approaching rather quickly. Along with winning these next few games, it is EXTREMELY important that we take care of business in the classroom as well. We will have ample time this weekend during the day for studying and preparing for finals. As student-athletes, somehow we are blessed with super powers to somehow be successful on and off the field. How that is possible blows my mind.
Make sure you’re keeping up with us on Facebook, Twitter or on the radio since we won’t be playing in the beautiful Tiger Park.
