HONOLULU, Hawaii After a loss against Chaminade Wednesday, the Eastern Oregon University softball team realized it has to work on the fundamentals to do better.

We want just to continue to improve, Eastern coach Anji Weissenfluh said.

Easterns softball team (4-8) competed in Hawaii over spring break, finishing 1-5.

The three teams Eastern faced on Oahu Hawaii Pacific University, Brigham Young-Hawaii and Chaminade were Division II teams and Eastern is NAIA, but Weissenfluh said her team still could have competed better.

We have good players, she said. We have solid players.

Weissenfluh said her team is playing catch up ball, because other teams have 20 games in and Eastern has only played 12.

Whats happening to us is were way behind because we havent had many games and practices in, she said.

Hitting and individual defense is what the team will be working on in practice this week.

We just want to work on the little things that will make us better, Weissenfluh said.

Pitcher Christina Pevey dropped off the team.

She was a good pitcher, Weissenfluh said. That will hurt our pitching staff a little.

Pevey decided to pursue other things, the coach said.

Two players are ineligible after grades came out on the Hawaii trip.
