ECU Softball Is California Bound

ECU Softball Is California Bound

March 6, 2012 by Alex Fieldhouse Sophomore infielder Part three of four To be completely honest, I’m not sure where this weekend went. It seems like three months ago my teammates and I were talking about how excited we were to come to Fullerton to play in the California sun and in front of our families and friends. The weekend went by so quickly, but it was definitely one to remember. It was difficult for me to sleep the nights before our games this weekend. I was antsy to play knowing all too well that our team was going toe-to-toe with four great programs. Our second game Saturday against Northwestern was special for me. I was able to be on […]

Butts Named USTFCCCA Regional Field Athlete Of The Year

Butts Named USTFCCCA Regional Field Athlete Of The Year

NEW ORLEANS, La. March 5, 2012 – Junior All-America Tynita Butts has been named the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Southeast Region Field Athlete of the Year according to an announcement by the organization Monday. Butts secured a mark of 1.85 meters, the fifth-highest nationally, in the high jump at the Conference USA Indoor Championships – helping East Carolina capture its first-ever indoor women’s team title since joining the Dallas-based association. With her performance in Birmingham, she assured herself of an automatic berth to the NCAA Indoor Championships which are scheduled for March 9-10 in Boise, Idaho. The C-USA event title marked her second consecutive and third overall as she won last year’s outdoor high jump […]

Get Yourself One of These, SeaLion 2012!

Get Yourself One of These, SeaLion 2012!

HATTERAS ISLAND, NC – The 2012 Hatteras windsurfing season is about to kick off!  Actually, given the mild winter, for some it really never ended between 2011 and 2012.  Though, as northern locations in New England and Canada remain frozen, the trek will begin soon to find warm weather and water here on the OBX. A hot ticket phenomenon last year was wavesailing SUPs to take advantage of light air surf conditions.  A leader in that arena is the AHD Sealion for its aggressive shape agility on a wave when winds are below 10 knots.  I had a TON of fun last summer riding the Lion in everything from knee high outside nuggets, to logo high bombs kicked up by […]

Butts Setting New Mark In Unique Fashion

Butts Setting New Mark In Unique Fashion

March 5, 2012 By Sam Hickman ECUPirates.com Before last weekend’s Conference USA Indoor Track and Field Championships, Joe Blaney said Tynita Butts has been down to her last “iota” on many occasions before hitting a qualifying mark. It didn’t take long for Blaney to witness his two-time All-America performer do it again last week in Birmingham. Butts, having already collected her second consecutive C-USA Indoor title in the high jump, focused her attention to qualifying for the NCAA Championships – a feat which demanded a clearance of the bar at 1.85 meters. She scratched on her first two attempts. However, as if Blaney’s previous comments were some sort of prophecy, Butts nailed her final try. If adding to an already-packed […]
