Syd Clemons-Freshman, catcher and 3B. Will get some time at catcher. Will be a nice utility player this year.
Danaka Seifert-Freshman, OF. Will help with depth.
2023 Outlook: Not a lot of question marks. We will be one of the teams to beat in the East Penn Conference this year along with Emmaus. Hailey Pyle and Mia VanFleet should give us solid pitching. The defense will be very good with Sophia Rivera and Leah Chladny as two of the better fielders at their position.
We have pretty good team speed with Rivera and Chladny at the top of the lineup and will be a very good hitting team with our starting nine all very capable of hitting over .300 and all have enough power to hit HR’s. Hailey Pyle, Leah Chladny and Francesca Obertholzer all return as girls who hit close or above .400 last year.
