The Northwestern State softball team opened practice for the 2014 season Monday afternoon under the direction of sixth-year head coach, Donald Pickett.

The Lady Demons will battle through a tough schedule ahead, complete with four SEC teams, six NCAA regional qualifiers and three NCAA super regional participants.

“We’ve gotten off to a good start and it feels nice to get back into a routine,” said Pickett. “Our pre-conference schedule has some good teams in it, and it will put us in a competitive state for the conference season.”

NSU returns 11 letterwinners, including 2013 All-Southland Conference first team selection Brianna Rodriguez, and position players Cheyenne DelaGarza, Cali Burke, Tara McKenney, Brittany Virgoe, Natalie Landry and Shenequia Abby. Returning pitchers

Louisiana-Monroe transfer Kayla Boening and nine other newcomers have joined the squad and are looking to make a lasting impression on the season. Second team All-Southland pick, Kaylee Guidry, and sophomore Baylee Gray return to the mound as well.

The 52-game schedule kicks-off at the Troy Subway Invitational in Troy, Ala., with contests against North Florida and the host Trojans Feb. 7, Alabama the following day and Middle Tennessee State Feb. 9.
