Well you know what they say, all good things have to come to an end. After a great season, the Hanover College softball team played their last game May 2. After a tough tournament, we fought hard and made it all the way to the conference championship game! This was the first time in 14…

Now that Spring Break is over, May Term on Hanover’s campus is just beginning. Our Spring Break is a bit different from everyone else’s because of May Term, where you take just one class for the month, but for the softball team it wasn’t just different, it was special.

When you face a tough call in softball

This weekend, we played our second conference double header for softball. It sure was a chilly start. It was our first away game, and it was all the way at Defiance (Ohio).

Softball opener on new field

Yesterday was our first home softball game of the year on our brand new field! We had long been anticipating playing because last week two home games were scheduled, but both were rained out and postponed. While the field was still a little damp, it was in great shape to get the double header out…

Keeping fit in college

Within the last year, I have gotten really into fitness. I have played sports my entire life, but that was because I loved the game. I never really did a whole lot of training outside of things related to my sports. But, as depressing as it really is, my body has changed a lot since…

Getting used to HC weather

Rain, rain, go away, come again NEVER! That was the song I was singing for part of this past week. It has been beautiful down here at Hanover College, and it seems that maybe we will be able to finally count on it feeling like spring for a while. But then, the rain hit, and…
