As a coach on the travel softball circuit, it is important to me and all the other travel ball coaches that our girls have as many opportinities to continue playing this game that we all love! Coaching an 18U team, I have talked to many young ladies over the years. When I talk to them about their future, the possibility of playing at the collegiate level, UNCW is almost always mentioned as a top five school on their respective lists. These young ladies, not only want to be apart of the softball program at UNCW, they also want to receive a degree from UNCW! The academic standing that UNCW possesses has grown greatly in recent years, and these student athletes want to be apart of this great university!
From a different angle, the new coaching staff has just completed their first year at the helm. There is no doubt that the program is markedly better than it has been in quite a while. These coaches are young, knowledgeable, full of energy, and very aggressive in recruiting! It is a short matter of time before this team is residing near the top of the CAA......coach Norton and Felts are aggressively recruiting so e of the best softball players in the Carolina's and beyond, which is quite the opposite of previous coaching staffs! I,we,strongly urge you to keep softball alive at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington! The girls and the coaches will make you proud that you did!
- To the Chancellor, Administration, and Athletic Administration at UNCW!
Support the continuation of the softball program!
