CSB: Young Yotes Learning How To Win

CSB: Young Yotes Learning How To Win
VERMILLION, SD -

The Coyote softball team currently sits at 6-5 in the Summit League, which has them tied with IUPUI for fourth place. With a little experience these young Yotes are ready to make some noise come tournament time.

With ten games remaining, six of them in the Summit League, the young Coyotes are trying to find themselves before the conference tournament begins. They lost back to back 8-7 games on Sunday at home to IUPUI. Now they need to prepare for three big games against their rivals from Brookings.

"As a team we have been progressing more and more as we have gone through the season. We just had a little setback, but we take it with a grain of salt. We have to go play South Dakota St. this weekend and take care of business there. I think we came out very strong on offense against IUPUI. We scored a lot of runs, we just weren't there on defense and that is our strong point. We just need to take it one game at a time from now on," USD Junior Catcher Allie Daly said.

Each game their skipper, Amy Klyse, sends out a young arm too. Along with sophomore Madison Frain, USD looks to freshman Rachel Cue to lead them inside the circle. Cue ranks fifth in the Summit League in ERA and wins. The Garden Grove, CA native has 132 strikeouts thus far which ranks fourth.

"Obviously she is our ace right now and we're looking to her to beat any team that we play. Offensively right now we are getting production throughout our entire lineup. On any given day if someone isn't producing the pressure is off of them, because they know that someone else can produce," USD Softball Manager Amy Klyse said.

While their young arms continue to learn the Coyotes bats remain red hot. Junior, Katie Dinning, ranks fourth in the League with a .376 batting average. Her classmate, Allie Daly sits fourth in homeruns with seven. As long as their pitching staff continues to improve they feel very confident heading into the postseason.

"Honestly," Daly stated. "There is always room for improvement. As a team we are becoming better in every aspect as we continue through our Summit League games. We just need to continue to improve and once we get into the tournament we need to play like we know how to."

The Yotes will travel to take on Iowa St. in a double-header on Tuesday before heading to Brookings for a three game set with SDSU beginning Friday at two o'clock.
