Softball team rides ten game streak into post season

Written by: Jackson Thompson

Mercer’s Vikings softball team finished up the regular season with a win against Ocean County on Friday April 21. They head into the postseason coming off a 10 game win streak and a total regular season record of 32-6.

Despite the obstacle of having to rebuild the team on two year rotations, the program has managed to maintain an exceptional level of performance on a consistent basis.

Sophomore catcher Tatum Marshall told The VOICE: “It’s definitely difficult because you create a bond with one set of girls and then you have to create a new bond and then you have to get used to everybody. For life, you’re learning that people are going to come and go and you have to adapt to others and the change.”

When asked how the program is able to maintain a talented roster year after year, head coach Ryan Zegarski attributed the program’s effectiveness to the scouting the athletic department does in the offseason.

“When you do your work in the offseason it makes your in season very very easy.” Zegarski said, adding, “If you recruit and do your due diligence and bring in these student athletes then you should have an easy in season.”

The Vikings begin postseason play on Saturday April 29 against Del Tech in the region 19 playoffs.
