Final Comments:
With the retirement of long time Head Coach Jon Parker (367 wins over 26 seasons) there are big shoes and expectations to fill. Strengths will be pitching from senior Abbi Hintz and junior Baylee Mirgon. Infield will have a lot of experience. Outfield will be completely new. There will be some young athletes competing for starting positions. This years schedule will test us as we have several D1 schools as well as schools that made district and state runs last season.
