PAINESVILLE, Ohio – The Lake Erie College softball team will be in Florida from Sunday (Feb. 26) to Friday (March 3) as they take their annual spring break trip. 

Storm: Report:  The Storm will be under the direction of first year head coach Rebecca Dyer, and are coming off the most successful season in program history.  The Storm was 7-5 in Florida last year.  Head Coach Rebecca Dyer said "Our upperclassman will be the backbone of our offense, with hopes of generating more runs than we have in past seasons. We have four freshmen who will see the field this year and make their own positive impact on the team". 

Schedule: The Storm will play ten games over the course of six days in Florida.  Lake Erie will play, Davenport, and Wheeling Jesuit at 9 and 11:30 a.m. respectively on Sunday (Feb. 26) to open their season.  The Storm will then play Kentucky Wesleyan, Michigan-Dearborn, Gannon, Calumet, Cedarville, and Northern State. 

Coach Dyer added "We hope to come out of Florida with a winning record like we have in past years. After a week of hard work and sunshine we will be ready to start conference games in March".

Forecast: Lake Erie will have a long break after returning from Florida as their next game will be Tuesday (March 21) against Ursuline.
