Toledo, OH — On Friday October, 26, the Owens Softball team will be holding open tryouts for the 2018-19 season. The tryouts are scheduled to begin at 3:30 PM in the afternoon. Interested parties should meet in the Student Health and Activities Center workout area, and they try outs will commence from there.
Owens is bringing its softball program back after the sport was suspended after the 2015-16 season due to budget cuts. Since the athletics programs have all moved to Division III, it was decided to bring the program back to begin play in the Spring of 2019. To participate, you must be a full time student at Owens Community College.
The Express are coached by Jeff Hankins, who is in his first year at the college. He was previously the head coach at Jackson College in Jackson, Michigan, prior to taking the position at Owens. For any more information, you can call Coach Hankins at (567) 661-7937 or email him at [email protected].
