It’s a family thing: softball coaches share more than love of the game

At ACU, softball is a family matter: two of the assistant softball coaches, Ashley Reeves and Heather Barton, are twin sisters and head coach Bobby Reeves is Ashley’s father-in-law.

Softball seniors prepare for final season as Wildcats

Freshman Phenom: Franklin dominates Southland in first year

JAYLEN FRANKLIN PHOTOS At 6-foot-8, 250 lbs, LeBron James dominated on both the football field and the basketball court in high school.

Back on Track: Walker balances classes and track coaching

He trades out his stopwatch for a backpack, his running spikes for dress shoes and removes his racing singlet for a normal shirt. Ray Walker does all of this before lunch.

Although he’s not studying music, Bynum is finding ways to play professionally […]

Three-Point Specialist: Mason knots three straight conference awards

The sharpshooting junior has won three consecutive Southland Conference Player of the Week Awards. It’s a feat that has not been accomplished since 2012, when Central Arkansas’ Megan […]

Sheehy puts five-star talent to the test

Josh Sheehy might not be a name recognized by most people on campus. The general ACU community may not even know that he’s a student-athlete, representing the Wildcats on the tennis court. And most probably don’t know that he was a five-star recruit out of high school that ACU was lucky enough to grab. But […]

From touchdowns to timed starts: Epps transition to the track

Whistles and yells echo from the field. Small orange cones mark every 10-15 yards. The sounds of shoes hitting the ground become a subtle background noise. All of these noises and sights are no different for senior wide receiver Jonathan Epps. The only difference is instead of football pads, he’s now in track spikes and […]
