MISENHEIMER, N.C. – The Pfeiffer softball team has announced its 2014 schedule after a 21-28 season in head coach Chris Vullo’s first season at the helm.
The Falcons will be tested right off the bat as they participate in the Cougar Classic at Columbus State on opening weekend Feb. 7-9. Pfeiffer will be matched up against the host Tusculum as well as Wingate, Lincoln Memorial and King University; all are strong and talented programs.
Feb. 11 and Feb. 15 will see Pfeiffer take on regional rivals Catawba and Lenoir-Rhyne. Last season, Pfeiffer came away with walk off victories over both opponents. Another key rematch is scheduled for April 2 when the Falcons take on Limestone as the Falcons look to repeat last season's 14-inning win.
Opening day is scheduled for Feb. 4 when Pfeiffer travels to Winston-Salem St. for a double header. Conference Carolinas play begins on March 8 when Pfeiffer battles North Greenville. Feb. 16 will serve as the Falcons home opener as they host Francis Marion for a double header.
“Our team has looked solid throughout the fall season and our returners have come back stronger,” said Vullo. “Our defense returns eight starters from the 2013 squad that was nationally ranked in the Top-20 for several weeks. We also have a young and talented pitching staff. Our goal each year is to qualify for the post-season and we’re excited to see this group of players perform and strive to meet that objective.”
