Colorado Christian Softball Feature

Updated: March 27, 2019

CCU Cougar Softball is the leader in the RMAC at the halfway point of the season. The upperclassmen laden squad has performed to expectations so far this season and are looking to continue doing so as the second half of conference play commences.

They’re under the direction of first-year head coach Larry Hays in 2019. But he’s not new to the coaching game. Hays is a National College Baseball Hall of Fame inductee and holds more than 1700 wins as a coach across four sports (baseball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and softball) at three schools (Texas Tech, Lubbock Christian and Colorado Christian).

Colorado Corner host Ben Blecha had the chance to talk with Coach Hays about this year’s team, his long-ranging coaching career, and our personal favorite, “sports as a metaphor for life.”
