Spartans Strong in Conference Clashes as Softball Success Continues

Strong pitching and defense for the University of Tampa women’s softball team can be noted for their current 19-5 record. Their bats have also given them comfortable leads and wins.

UT currently sits atop of the Sunshine State Conference, winning six of their seven conference matchups so far.

Coming off a record setting season last year, sophomore Deanna Henriott (12-3) leads the Spartans with her pitching.

With a 14-strikeout performance against American International earlier in the season, Henriott earned her first no-hitter of the season and her second as a Spartan.

Heather Van Landingham (6-2) also takes the mound for the Spartans and has been successful in her junior season.

Proving to be dominant in the conference at this point in the year, the Spartans will face only SSC opponents for the remainder of the regular season.

The lineup has proven to be dangerous for opposing pitchers, as UT has outscored opponents 125-50.

Freshman catcher Becky Vyzas has earned her spot by consistently producing at the plate. She has numerous multi-hit games and is making a good name for herself.

The Spartans will face Florida Tech in a three-game weekend series at UT starting at 7 p.m. on Friday.
