NICHOLLS STATE BASEBALL BEGINS FALL PRACTICE SESSIONS
With 15 returners and 23 newcomers, the Colonel baseball team took to the field for the first time this week in preparation for the 2009 season.
“I think we’ve had three really good practices to open the fall and the thing that is really evident about this team already is that we definitely have team speed,” remarked head coach Chip Durham. “We have position players who can really run and that makes us feel really good about being in a situation where, as we continue to develop over the fall, we really have a chance to play defense well.”
Nicholls will continue with regular practice sessions through the 45-day fall workout period, practicing on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 2 p.m. and holding intrasquad games on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m., Fridays at 3 p.m. and Saturdays at 9 a.m. FULL STORY
