    Emily Hansen hit HR #16 (in 22 games) in the AAAA State QF today.

    1 for 2 with 2 RBI & 2 walks vs Edina.

    Any word lately on assistant coaching changes or additions. There was some rumor about an imminent change. Hope this does not involve Piper Ritter as she has a phenomenal record coaching our pitchers. There was some discussion of getting a hitting coach.

    Some of the players will be meeting one of the candidates for the assistant job on Friday. I would assume if they are setting up meetings with the players they have settled on at least their top choices. I doubt that there would be a pitching coach change - the players really like Coach Ritter and she has done a great job finding and developing the talent.

    Agree. Ritter is Minnesota through and through. Losing her would be a huge blow. Trachsel has gone as far as to say Piper IS Minnesota softball.

    With all that said, I doubt she leaves (and I hope I'm right on that).

    I hope MRJ is right on that, too. On a similar note, I read about the outstanding recruits other programs are getting for next fall. Are the Gopher recruits announced so far up to a high national standard? Any info would help....

    I'm hardly a softball recruiting guru, but I know that Emily Hansen made the USA Today HS All-American softball team for 2018. Also, I believe Josey White was/is a top-100 recruit (I have no idea whether she still is or not, but considering she hit over .800 for her high school season, I'm guessing she's still considered a very good prospect). Other than that, I really don't know much.

    Hope this helps, at least a little.

    What was lacking between the head coach in 2018 and the hitting coach? Seen from the bleachers, it seemed there was a sort of frantic attitude between the 2 coaches. One year isn't long for a new coach to stay.

    Just spitballing here, but maybe a difference in personality/approach?

    Hope Brandner from Oregon State is transferring to the Gophers! Great news to get another strong bat on the roster!
