A new semester and a new field starts off the semester for the DVC softball team as they welcomed in a new home field for their 2014 spring season. With a new team and a brand new field this season is looking great for the DVC Vikings.

With a whole new layout and  many new amenities, the team showed their excitement for the new season during their first couple of practices.

The new field is rebuilt with a whole new layout including a new drainage system, sod and grass. The field  also includes a brand new windshield and backstop surrounding the facility. It is equipped for the team with player cubbies and new dugouts for both the home and away teams.

Fans of DVC softball will also be pleased to hear that the field includes new and improved bleachers.

With the new season starting, the new home field is already getting positive feedback from both the coaches and athletic department. Division secretary Marisa Greenberg  explained the many amenities that were done to the field and said that everything is new and improved. 

When asked about the new field and how much more improved it was compared to the old  layout, the coaches had nothing but wonderful things to say about the new home field.

Coach Angie Goularte loves the field said that “the drainage is so much more better and will make practices easier without the flooding.”

She said the softball players are taking pride of the facility and are happy to have a new field.

Coach Goularte is excited to see where the season takes them and is excited with the rising players on the team. With great chemistry and a brand new home field this season is looking great for the DVC softball team.

The first home game on the new field was on Tuesday, Feb.4 against San Francisco Community College.
