After 36 games, it is notable that GW has some hitting. The resulting record is 12-24 (3-5 in the A10). It seems that each year, we are adding a field player who can hit. GW has actually been playing long ball this season. GW has hit 30 homers to the opponents 20 so far after 36 games. It also should be noted that we aren't far behind in doubles and hits.
It didn't help that GW lost their first 9 games. To be fair, the team has been pretty competitive and in many of the losses, losing by only one or two runs. The team is at the point where adding even a little more pitching will go a long way to getting to .500 and beyond. Speaking of which, the Colonials will lose Lauren Wilson who is providing both power and average at the plate. We should add a couple of field players who have been able to drive the ball in high school and a very solid pitcher.
Of course, we are losing two pitchers to graduation this year.
I would put the team as heading in the right direction, but still not quite improving like it should. Some of that might be caused by the instability over the past several seasons on the sidelines.Stacey Schramm, our coach is young, but experienced with several programs. Development has been clear and recruiting is there. Results? Not so much. At the plate, the performance has clearly improved, but our seniors haven't produced as pitchers as one would have hoped.
