The Cougars are returning strong this year with eight sophomores and 13 freshmen. The team has two starters returning in the circle, along with five incoming freshman pitchers.
"This is the most depth that we have had on our pitching staff," said Head Coach Morgan VanderBor. "Each of them brings their own dynamic to the team. Defensively this group of girls will be highly competitive working together as one."
In addition, VanderBor said, there are many power hitters this year who will make pitching to the Cougar offense quite difficult. There are also quite a few players who will be hard to throw out on the bases because of their speed and smart base running.
"We are excited to start our season," she said. "These young women are very eager to be on the field. This team has really come together since fall and have created a culture of family. They pick up each other, and play for each other. With the amount of talent they have, plus the love and respect they have for each other, it will make this team hard to beat."
