The SFU softball team travels to North Carolina to play it first game of the 2017 season against North Carolina Central on Feb. 10.

The Flash are looking to build on last year’s 34-win season, one which included a 13-3 mark in regular-season Northeast Conference games. Junior shortstop Jordan Seneca believes the team has the talent and formula to win the NEC in 2017.

“We know what we have to do to get over the hump,” said Seneca, who hit .313 last year with a school-record 18 home runs.

The shortstop and captain is looking for another spectacular season. She drove in 59 runs in 58 games last spring.

Seneca believes that the Flash are a more confident group entering 2017. Many freshmen were depended upon heavily last season, and those players now have significant collegiate experience.

Long Island is the team that the Red Flash are gunning for in the NEC. The Blackbirds won the 2016 NEC title and have claimed 14 conference crowns.

LIU-Brooklyn’s pitching has been the key to its success.

“Our team, as a whole, struggles with the low inside and outside pitches,” said Red Flash sophomore pitcher Mikayla Bower, “so that is something we are making our focus.”
