TU softball coach talks first win


Thomas softball may be off to a 1-5 start, but coach Bill Wilson insists his team has no hole to dig itself out of.


“We’ve played really well even though it’s not showing record-wise,” Wilson said. “I tell my kids all the time that it’s not all about winning and losing.


“It’s about competing, and they’re competing hard every time.”


Thomas started the season against three rugged opponents, including two Division I teams (Morgan State and Savannah State), and the defending NAIA champion (Shorter).


Wilson believes that the problems Thomas endured are easily fixable. The Lady Night Hawks are hitting a respectable, yet improvable, .284.


“We have all the talent in the world,” he said. “It’s a matter of getting a few breaks this way or the next.”


“We have to focus on getting into the region championship and from there, worry about qualifying for nationals,” he said.


The road will not get easier, though.


Thomas takes on three Top 25 teams in this weekend’ Clermont Softball Tournament: Mobile, Reinhardt and USC-Beaufort before the conference capper against St. Thomas.


“I don’t think we’re in any early season hole,” Wilson said.
