DSU Spring

Lady Hornets take on Spring 

Even though the weather has been difficult this Spring, the DSU softball team has found a way to get some games in! After the flight to Arizona was cancelled due to the snow that hit the East Coast, the Lady Hornets were able to find an open tournament at East Carolina University!

They were able to take a bus down to Greenville, North Carolina and play 4 games against Drexel University, Seton Hall University, and East Carolina University.  They finished 2-2 after the weekend!

The Lady Hornets then traveled to Norfolk State University and played 3 more games.  Wagner College, La Salle University, and Fairleigh Dickinson University were the opponents, and after finishing the tournament 3-0 the Delaware State Hornets were the tournament champions.

Mother Nature tried to prevent the DSU softball team from playing games again with the cancellation of the George Washington University game as well as the Towson University tournaments.  However, the DSU coaches were able to find another open tournament at Longwood University.  At Longwood, the Lady Hornets were challenged by Longwood University, University of Rhode Island, and University of Delaware.  With beautiful weather in Farmville, Virginia, they finished 2-2.

After all the traveling, the Lady Hornets were able to come home and play in the Hornet Invitational against Lehigh University and University of Hartford.  Due to field renovations, the Lady Hornets were unable to participate at DSU but had community help with Wesley College and Dover High School.  After the tournament, the team finished 3-2! With the DSU pitching staff and defense giving up only 3 runs the entire weekend!  After about a month and a half of playing, the Lady Hornets are 10-6 
and are looking for more wins at the Sean Savage Tournament that will be held at DSU Softball Field with Central Connecticut State University and Cornell University.  

Even  with being busy getting ready for the Spring Season, the DSU Softball team was able to participate in the Delaware State University's Founders day on February 25, 2014 at Loockerman Hall. They were able to meet some past Alumni who lived in Loockerman Hall. 

For the Spring Season, the Lady Hornets upgraded to new bats and helmets! 

The Lady Hornets are also selling Team Posters for $5, Visors for $18, Ear Warmers for $12, and Hats for $16.  Please contact Hannah Fulk at for more information.  All funds will benefit the DSU Softball Team!
