Softball Selected 7th in MEC Preseason Poll

West Virginia Wesleyan has been picked by the coaches in the Mountain East Conference to win the 2015 softball conference title. The Bobcats finished with 116 points and were picked to finish first on six ballots. West Virginia Wesleyan won the MEC regular season title last year and advanced to the NCAA Atlantic Region finals.

Urbana University was selected 7th in the preseason poll. In the inaugural season for MEC softball last spring, the Blue Knights jockeyed for position in the conference's top 3 spots with WVWC and UVa.-Wise all season long. Urbana eventually bowed out of the MEC Tournament in 3rd place, but not before posting a school-record 28 wins, including a 16-11-1 mark in the MEC. The Blue Knights posted back-to-back winning seasons under fourth year Head Coach Danielle Lowe for the first time since 1998-99 seasons. Read More
