Opposing players to watch

Softball: North Texas @ Marshall

Friday at 1 p.m.—Friday at 3 p.m.—Saturday at noon

Taylor Schoblocher, Left Field, #16-  Schoblocher has been an offensive force this season anticipating pitches and hitting with power.

Schblocher has the capability to belt homers and carry the ball when she is able to get underneath pitches.

She has posted a .457 batting average on the season, and due to her power boasts an uncanny .880 slugging percentage.

Schoblocher has totaled 31 runs batted in on 42 hits this season, bolstered by 11 homeruns and 16 total extra base hits.

However, Schoblocher hasn’t been nearly as impressive in conference plays where her numbers have fallen off considerably. She is batting just .265 with a slugging percentage of .529 with three homers and eight RBIs in 12 games. Those aren’t terrible marks, but they aren’t the type of eye-popping numbers of her accumulative season statistics.

Tennis: No. 38 DePaul @ Marshall

Friday at 4 p.m.

Rebeca Mitrea-  Mitrea has been impressive throughout the dual season, but she has been particularly remarkable recently, reeling off eight straight singles victories.

Mitrea is a prime example of the quality and depth of the DePaul team, playing as the four, five or six seed in all 14 matches this season, posting a 12-2 record.

Interestingly, both of Mitrea’s losses have come as the team’s six seed, while she has a combined 9-0 mark in the fourth and fifth spots.

Mitrea has partnered with Yuliya Shupenia to form a formidable doubles team this season. The pairing has gone 11-2 during the dual season, competing as the team’s second and third doubles grouping.

No. 52 William & Mary @ Marshall

Sunday at noon

Leeza Nemchinov-   The 52nd nationally ranked William & Mary Tribe has been anchored all season by its star player, Nemchinov, who is in the midst of one of the best individual seasons in the country.

Nemchinov has posted a 14-1 singles record during the dual season, competing as the one seed in all 15 matches.

In fact, Nemchinov had ascended to the 51st ranked singles player in the nation as of March 24. She has been named the Colonial Athletic Association singles player of the week on three separate occasions this season and has been lauded with seven total weekly awards during the dual season this far.

Nemichinov is equally spectacular in doubles play this season, where she posted a 12-3 record with partner, Jeltje Loomans.

The partnership has won the CAA doubles team of the week three times during the spring season.
