Well it's hard to believe that softball season is almost here.

And the McMurry softball coaching staff must be thinking of the same thing.

They officially had their first ever practice as a program.

When we caught up with the squad they were still filling out their roster and they were playing in gym shorts not the official softball gear.

Well a lot has changed because now they're ready to play..

“We've been waiting for this day.” David McNally, McMurry’s softball head coach, said. “You know, we've had our offseason, we've done our stuff. I think that's when it starts sinking in over the break of just right around the corner fixing to get started.”

“We all already know that we feel like we're going to have a pretty solid team and we're just super excited to see what this season has in store for us.” Courtney Owen, a junior outfield transfer.

Their season begins against Trinity University at home on February 2nd.
