The competitive softball program at BW began in 1970 and made the switch from slow-pitch to fast-pitch in 1985. Whether fast-pitch or slow-pitch, BW annually has been regarded as one of the best squads in the Ohio Athletic Conference and regionally at the NCAA Division III level.
"We want the student-athlete who plays softball at BW to have fun, learn about the game and be competitive," said Head Coach Tom Spencer.
"We want to work hard to learn the fundamentals during the fall and then apply them in the spring," he said. "Our goal is to compete at the OAC Tournament in May and hopefully at the NCAA Division III regional and national levels.
"We have a strong tradition," said Spencer, who returned to BW in 2007-08 after stints at NCAA Division I Butler (Ind.) University and NCAA Division II Notre Dame College (Ohio). "The young woman who plays softball at BW has the chance to get a quality education and fun in a winning program."
