Hello Patriot Family! My name is Doug O’Neal and I will be the new head softball coach for FEAST this coming season. My wife, Kelly, and I have three children; two of which are still in homeschool. When we decided to homeschool our kids we realized that our kids needed interaction with kids their age. Since I am a former ballplayer and our girls were interested, we decided sports would be one of the activities that would give our kids the interaction they needed.
I started coaching when I was in high school, so it was natural that I would be interested in coaching again with my own kids. The girls and I started in Little League and then quickly went to the fast pace of travel ball. I’ve been coaching fast pitch softball for 10 years.
I truly enjoy spending my spare time coaching young ladies on the Diamond; not only teaching them the game of softball but helping teach them a way of life that will help prepare them for the future which lies in front of them. I am currently the head coach for an 18u travel team and I plan to bring all my coaching experience to FEAST to facilitate a winning and an educational season.
Our goal is to put FEAST softball on schedule as a “team to watch”. With that goal in mind, we will start clinics (open to all who are interested) in late August. Tryouts for the 2019 Lady Patriots will be in late October and I will provide more details as they become available. Parents, to have a successful season we will need your help and I will provide more details on this later. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at Feastsoftball@gmail.com Looking forward to a great season! Coach Doug O’ Neal
Going and Growing Strong
This is an exciting year for our FEAST Lady Patriots Softball Team. The girls have shown a lot of courage and unity. They had a four game win streak in March. Their toughest challenge was St Mary’s Hall. The Lady Patriots were behind 8 – 1 and pulled off a come from behind rally and won 15 – 9!
During Spring Break most of our team was involved with a church camp in Leakey, TX. This was great opportunity for our girls to strengthen their bond and learn the importance of God and how the Bible can be the answer to life’s challenges together.
There is still time to catch a FEAST Lady’s Softball Game April 3, 2018 at 5pm at Cole High School April 24, 2018 at 4:30 pm at San Marcos Academy
Putting Softball to the Test
Softball is off to a great start. The girls have had an opportunity to be involved with the San Antonio Christian Schools Tournament, where we had a close loss to Providence and an unforeseen loss to Charlotte. Both programs have had their programs around for quite some time. Unfortunately, rain was a huge factor, and our tournament was cut short, but the girls stood firm in adversity.
Sports gives us all the ability to test ourselves mentally, physically and emotionally in a way no other aspect of life can. Our girls are in the midst of being tested. They have just finished a game with Cornerstone and will now head to San Marcosthis Thursday, with a double header with the Atonement Academy on Saturday and finally a game on Monday with St Mary’s Hall! A lot of softball in a short amount of time! We will then go on a 20 day break due to Spring Break weeks, but we will start practice up again on March 19, and back to games on the 26th of March.
We have our first spirit wear t-shirts floating around on athletes, students and family members as well as our team hoodie. Coach Bags reports that the team is bonding real well and showing signs of wanting to keep returning for more years to come for Lady Patriots Softball.
When you see any of the team be sure to greet them with a “Go Lady Patriots!”
