Hey Tiger Fans,

Simone Heyward here with this week’s Berm Blog entry.  We’re halfway through conference play and are looking forward to a challenging April leading into postseason play. 

This week we’re in Aggieland, a place we are very familiar with. The only difference this time is that we are in conference play instead of the NCAA Regionals. We’re fighting for the SEC West title, and our regular season record against a non-neutral Aggie crowd.  It will no doubt be challenging, but we are excited for it. 

The talk on the town is that Texas A&M is ready for us, but little do they know, we have a secret weapon: volunteer coach Sharonda McDonald.  Sharonda played at A&M and received many awards. Now retired from playing professional ball, Sharonda has joined the Tigers as a volunteer coach helping with the outfield and the slappers.  She’s been teaching us her ways and showing us secrets to beating the Aggies … I’m just kidding, but she has been a big key in helping us prepare for them. 

This weekend is going to be a great one and hope all of your Tiger fans are ready.”

Geaux Tigers,
