Temple Softball Team Welcomes A New Member

The A-10 prides itself on student-athletes that do well on the field, in the classroom and in the community. The Temple Women’s Softball team is no exception with their recent “adoption” of six-year old Vanessa Moressi through the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation.

The Lady Owls adopted Vanessa after they were inspired by the Temple women's lacrosse program who also participates in the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation with their second adoptee, Lily Adkins.

Along with Temple, five other A-10 schools participate in the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation: the Duquesne Dukes, La Salle Explorers, Saint Joseph’s Hawks, the Massachusetts Minutemen and the Richmond Spiders.

Gearing Up for A-10 Baseball Tourney

In honor of the last week of Atlantic 10 Baseball Conference play, and being a week out from the Atlantic 10 Baseball Championship, we thought A-10 Nation would enjoy this video of the Atlantic 10's own Director of Communications, Jason Leturmy, throwing out the first pitch at the Rivershark's game at Campbell's field a week ago.

He claims it was a strike, what do you think?

Charlotte's Loftsson Sinks Hole-In-One At A-10 Tourney

Charlotte's Olafur Loftsson sunk the first hole-in-one of his career on arguably, the biggest stage: the 15th hole of the first day of the 2011 Atlantic 10 Golf Championship. 

Check out the amazing shot and Loftsson's reaction here:

Loftsson found the bottom of the cup with a pitching wedge from 146 yards out.  Never a dull moment at an A-10 Championship!

The 49ers went on to capture their league-record 6th A-10 title.
