Eagles open season Friday with full slate

EVANSVILLE, Ind.—The University of Southern Indiana softball team opens its 2006 season Friday when it competes in the 10th Annual UCA Spring Clash in Conway, Arkansas.

USI, which was 30-20 overall last season and 10-8 in the GLVC, plays four games Friday, starting with the University of Arkansas-Monticello at 9:30 a.m. The Screaming Eagles also play Northwest Missouri State University (1:30 p.m.), Southern Arkansas University (3:30 p.m.), and Pittsburg State University (5:30 p.m.) Friday before participating in bracket play Saturday.

Fifth-year Head Coach Sue Kunkle, who is 114-80 since taking over the program in 2002, brings back her entire starting infield as well as her top two pitchers from last season's squad. Kunkle needs to mix 11 returnees—six position starters—with three newcomers this season.

Lisa Anderson

Junior catcher Lisa Anderson (Chesterton, Indiana) and senior pitcher Missy Grover (Mishawaka, Indiana) are USI's top returnees.

Anderson is a two-time All-GLVC and All-Great Lakes Region performer. She hit .329 with four home runs and 30 RBIs in 2005.

Missy Grover

Grover earned All-GLVC honors in 2005 after notching a team-leading 15 victories and six shutouts as a junior. She had a 2.08 ERA with 18 complete games a year ago.

Following the UCA Spring Clash, USI travels to Huntsville, Alabama, February 24-25 to compete in the University of Alabama-Huntsville Charger Chillout.
