In there earlier season matches, UAM composed an overall record of two wins and seven losses. In hopes of completing a successful season, juniors Amanda Sayre and Amie Kronk are both excited to be the first at UAM to step up to the challenge.
Kronk, who could have easily been in California, Florida or South Carolina, received her call about two weeks prior to report day when she decided the UAM could be a nice fit for her.
The native of San Antonio, Texas, went to Frank Phillips Community College before transferring here to eventually team up with Redland Community College graduate Sayre.
Sayre, a native of Del City, Okla., seems to think that the team played well at the University of Louisiana at Monroe but feels that the teams still needs a little bit more time to bond, knowing that the team is still in a learning phase.
“The more we play together the better, but still if you can’t practice in a game situation how can you play in a game situation,” Kronk said.
With the team not being deep, the Blossoms are constantly forced to play at their best in order to beat one of the other teams. With conference play beginning Sept. 20 in a match-up against Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, the team is hoping to maintain at least a general idea of starters and potential rotations by then.
