Women's Softball Club

Club Information

Indy Inventational

Placed 2nd in the Indiana Invitational this year!

The league we're in consists of Michigan State, Central Michigan University, Lake Superior State University, and Oakland University. Our club advisor is Mitch Eastlick. We play year-round from September to May. Most of our Conference games are played in the Fall and Regionals and Nationals are played in the spring. In the NCSA, our games are usually scheduled as triple headers on Sundays and we only meet with each team once a year. For example, we may host Central this fall, but they will host us in the fall of next year. We are planning on holding mandatory practices from 5:45-6:45 p.m. on Tuesdays and 6-8 p.m. on Thursdays in the fall. During the winter, we will be practicing in the turf building as well as lifting, and times are TBA.

  • President: Emily Odenbach
  • Vice President: Logan Navarro
  • Financial Officer: Angela Iott
  • Public Relations: Taylor Trudeau
  • Risk Manager: Elizabeth Hovest
