ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- The New Mexico softball team hosted its winter camp last weekend at Lobo Field and was very pleased with the participation and support. The winter camp was the first for UNM under the direction of new head coach Ty Singleton. The camp was attended by nearly 100 players, with 60 area coaches attending the coaching clinic in the afternoon session.
"We are very thankful for the turnout and it was a very successful camp," said UNM head coach Ty Singleton. "The campers worked hard during the morning session and worked on skills to develop their overall play. The coaching clinic was a great opportunity to spend time with local coaches. It was a great way to get to know everyone and continue to grow softball in New Mexico."
The morning session featured the campers being introduced to the Lobo style of hitting, pitching, catching and defense. More intense training is tentatively planned for this summer.
The coaching clinic had coaches attend from all over the central New Mexico area and covered every aspect of the coaching profession. The goal of the camp and clinic is to help develop softball opportunities in state of New Mexico.
UNM is opens the 2007 season at the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz., against Ohio State on Feb. 9. For more information about Lobo softball visit www.GoLobos.com.
