Inaugural Season About to Begin
Head Coach of the first ever Penn State Brandywine Softball team, Mark Caserta, has very high hopes for the upcoming first softball season here at Brandywine.
“I am looking forward to a very competitive season,” Coach Caserta said.
Eleven girls are practicing to get ready for the inaugural season in the auxiliary gym and also at an indoor facility in West Chester. Six girls are currently splitting time between the end of the women’s basketball season and the start of the women’s softball season.
The team is eager to be play a full season at a collegiate level, despite not having had the chance to play outside since the fall.
“We played Neumann University in the fall and probably won’t be able to get outside until we travel to Florida,” assistant coach Bobbi Caprice said.
The auxiliary gym in Commons provides a batting tunnel and room to do fielding, running and batting drills.
Freshman Lindsey Dellavecchio is very excited about this upcoming season.
“I’m excited to meet all new people and get a team going with a good reputation,” said Dellavecchio.
Head Coach Caserta said he has a good group of women on this team who show talent, competitiveness and aggressiveness. Caserta is also looking forward to going out, having fun and winning.
The team will be traveling to Vero, Florida for spring break to play four games. If you are interested in coming to the team’s first game, it will be held on March 20, against Rosemont at Brandywine’s home field, which is located in Delaware. The address is 2619 Foulk Road Wilmington, DE 19810
