VSU softball: A record-setting streak

-- — A winning streak takes on a life of its own. People thrill at witnessing a team win game after game.

A streak attracts new fans. People who may have never given a certain team, or even a certain sport, much time suddenly sound like experts discussing the players, the plays, the rivalries, the number of wins.

And a streak brings out something of the pessimist in some people. Some people often watch just to say they were present when the team lost and the winning streak ended.

Right now, many eyes are on Valdosta State University Blazers softball team. As of this past weekend, the team has won 31 games in a row. Last week, the Blazers earned the longest winning streak in Gulf South Conference history.

For the season, the softball team is 4-0 this season against conference rival Alabama-Huntsville, 37-2 overall, and 20-0 in the Gulf South Conference.

VSU head coach Thomas Macera leads the softball team. Throughout the streak, Macera has remained respectful of opposing team’s abilities and thankful for the supportive fans.

As the streak continues, VSU softball has been setting attendance records. Expect attendance to keep growing as the streak continues.

VSU softball continues with its next game this weekend.
