Coach Chuck Corle's quote: "She's one of our four pitchers, probably our No. 1 pitcher, and plays shortstop. She's a heads-up player who bats second and has scored a lot of runs. She gets on base ahead of our power hitters. We had a good year last year and are hoping to do better this year, and she'll be leading the way.''
