Poarch-hosted softball clinic a success

Several area softball players attended a softball clinic last weekend featuring the coaching staff from Faulkner University at the Poarch Athletic Complex.

The clinic featured the Lady Eagles head coach Hal Wynn, his coaching staff and players teaching different techniques for fielding, pitching and batting to players including several EA Lady Cougars.

Lady Cougars head coach Ronnie Huskey said he thought the clinic was great for his players to be a part of.

“We had eight players take part in the clinic, and I loved it,” Huskey said. “Faulkner did an outstanding job, and I thought the girls were able to get a lot out of it.”

With softball season still several months away, the Lady Cougars will have time to work on the things they learned during the workout.

Huskey said he thinks the things that his team learned at the clinic will help them during their 2011 season.

“I think all of the things they learned will help tremendously,” Huskey said. “It also helped us in our relationship with coach Wynn and Faulkner, and we are going to try and do more things like this in the future.”
