As their seasons get under way, the Eastern New Mexico University baseball and softball teams are off to a great start.
As of March 19, the ENMU Greyhound baseball team was 10-12, with a win and a loss against Cameron University this month and a recent loss to Texas A&M Kingsville.
Coach David Gomez said, “We’ve dropped a few games I felt we should have finished stronger. Besides that, we are getting a lot of new guys experience, and we are starting to come together and develop roles. We are excited to play some more homes games and get some of our key veterans healthy. We are not necessarily nervous, but our injuries have been a concern. Once we get to full strength, a lot of our nervous energy will start to subside.”
Earlier this month, the baseball team hosted special games in honor of different groups. On March 17, the team hosted a green out day for Saint Patrick’s Day. In the month of April, there will three specialty games, such as breast cancer awareness on April 13, military appreciation on April 27, and senior day on April 28.
The ENMU softball team was on a roll with six straight wins but fell to Cameron University on March 15 and 16. On March 1-2, the Lady Greyhounds faced off against UT-Permian Basinin their breast cancer awareness games, winning in all three face offs. The team is 10-11 for the season so far.
"We are excited about how our season is going so far. The team has been able to step up in clutch situations to find different ways to be successful on game day. The season to date has been a true team effort, and that is the mentality we want to continue to have moving forward as we get in the middle of the LSC season," said head Coach Kira Zeiter.
The softball team also hosted a military appreciation game on March 15.
