Final Comments:
This years group is extremely hardworking, coachable and they get along great! We have an experienced outfield anchored by Kelly Troup in centerfield. The infield will be led by Mallie Ruscitti at shortstop and Megan Schmidt at second. We are young in the circle with the loss to graduation of 4 year starter Alexsa Hurd and new at the 3rd base corner with Haley Hopkins graduating.
