The Spartans (0-2 ECC, 2-4) did not get off to the start of conference play as they were hoping as they lost to cross town rival Anderson 4-3 and Kings 8-5.
The Spartans (0-0 ECC, 2-2) had a little bit of everything going on in the opening week as they scored 45 runs and allowed 29 in two wins and two losses. The Spartans only return four players with significant varsity experience so they are going to have ups and downs this season as the team comes together. The good news is I saw a lot of potential this week and significant improvements have already been taking place.
Turpin's fastpitch squad is playing its best softball of the season heading into the crucial final 2 weeks. The girls are riding a 2-game winning streak and have won 3 out of their last 4. The girls showed moments of brilliance in losses to top teams Lakota East and Glen Este, before finally breaking through last week and dominating Kentucky's Notre Dame, which was at the top of the Enquirer's Northern Kentucky rankings.
The Turpin fastpitch squad is off to a 4-5 start, with a successful 3-1 trip to Tennessee but 3 early losses to top ECC foes. The Tennessee trip brought the squad 3 quick victories over spring break.
