Miami softball is hoping for a great season

The Miami RedHawks are excited to be playing softball this year after last year’s season was cut short by two months. Still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the season looks a little different this year. Practices have to happen in small groups, and schedules are constantly changing.

Two games left, two wins?

The loss to Akron was quickly overshadowed by Miami’s recent win against Kent State Saturday afternoon. The Golden Flashes, who sit fourth overall in the Mid-American Conference (MAC), are seeded significantly higher than Miami. Regardless, the RedHawks kept their composure. A three-point buzzer-beater by sophomore guard Peyton Scott secured the 61-58 win on Senior Day. Scott’s buzzer-beater was No. 5 on SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays the next morning.

Miami goes 1-1 against top-seeded Broncos

 In a tense matchup on Thursday night, the Miami RedHawks defeated the top-seeded Western Michigan Broncos in volleyball. After the game, head coach Carolyn Condit praised her team, but she knew they would have to maintain their energy for the next match. “Tomorrow will be a dog fight,” Condit said. Indeed it was.

“I thought I’d be there for three years”: how Carolyn Condit made Oxford home

 In “The Andy Griffith Show,” there’s a town called Mayberry, N.C., which is the main setting of the show. Mayberry is a sleepy town, with just 5,000 people, one traffic light and not much else. The inspiration for Mayberry came from a town in North Carolina called Mount Airy. For volleyball head coach Carolyn Condit, however, the town may as well have been based on another sleepy town called Oxford, Ohio.


Sophomore guard Peyton Scott scored a career-high 39 points in Saturday's loss to Ball State, her fourth straight game with 30 or more points.
