February 9, 2018 Softball Team Drops Heart-Breaker To Open Season Texarkana, Texas-The Eagles would tie the game 1-1 in the top of the seventh and then take a 2-1 lead in the top of the eighth only to have Texas A&M-Texarkana spoil Ozarks season-opener 3-2 Friday on the road.

February 7, 2018 2018 Softball Preview Clarksville, Ark.-Several new faces and three returning senior All-Conference starters will play key roles in the upcoming 2018 University of the Ozarks softball season. The Eagles lost four starters from last year's squad, but have plenty of capable replacements entering the new season. The Eagles have eight new players on the roster and return All-Conference players Katie Ventress, Brooke Hoffsommer and Hannah Oler. The trio is expected to guide an otherwise young team. Ventress, a designated player and pitcher, led the team in batting (.289), hits (28), total bases (44), home runs (4), RBI (17), slugging percentage (.454), walks (13) and on-base percentage (.373). Hoffsommer, an outfielder, led the team with 18 runs and 111 at-bats and ranked second in hits (25) and total bases (30). Oler, a designated player and pitcher, led the team in innings pitched (123.0) and strikeouts (27), while also homering and driving in seven runs. In the circle, she led the club in complete games (14) and recorded one shutout. Oler, Ventress and Abby Mork make up the pitching staff for Rodriguez. With numerous young players competing in the toughest NCAA Division III conference in the country, Rodriguez has emphasized the importance of adjusting to the collegiate game. "The basics of the game don't change much, but the speed of the game does," he said. "Everything is hit or pitched a little harder, and the players move faster. Everything they did prior to collegiate softball has prepared them for this, but now they have to understand they need to make adjustments and move forward."
