Head Coach Dave Deiros is looking forward to a stronger year.  "The schedule makers have not been kind.  We play the tournament host (USF at USF) on Friday night and the #2 in the country, the Florida Gators."  Look for more experience in this year's team.  Last year there were six freshman starters, but as they return as sophomores with a year's experience behind them, the team is a lot more ready for what will be thrown at them.  The team is more offensive than they were before, so look for more action at the plate.  The new season starts Friday at 4PM at USF in Tampa.  The following weekend FGCU hosts the tournament.
