Last weekend the Kent State softball team was scheduled to open 2020 Mid-American Conference play at Toledo. Playing league games was a planned reward for the Golden Flashes, who battled six ranked teams and a stellar Duke squad on the road in the opening month of the season.
A tough 3-1 loss to the host Blue Devils on March 7 left the Flashes at 9-10, but trending in the right direction according to fifth-year head coach Eric Oakley.
"As a team I think we were just starting to figure it out," said Oakley.
