Key Returning Players:
Shauna McNamee – C (Sophomore) – 5’9″ – 0.390 BA, 0.486 OBP, 1 HR, 12 RBI (Shuana brings power to the top of the lineup. She will be starting behind the plate for her 2nd year)

Sydney Harper – P/OF (Senior) – 5’5″ – 0.311 BA, 0.391 OBP, 2 HR (Sydney has been a starter since her sophomore year. She is an athletic outfielder who’s got speed and will be a vital part of our pitching staff)

Cassie Zellner – 1B/AP (Senior) – 5’7″ – 0.391 BA, 0.500 OBP, 1HR, 11 RBI (Cassie has been a starter in this lineup since her sophomore year. She brings a lot of power to the top of the lineup)

Natalie Chloros – OF (Sophomore) 5’9″
Emma Infantino – P/IF (Sophomore) 5’7″
Marley Wismer – IF (Sophomore) 5’5″

Avery Kauffman – P (Freshman) 5’10”

2023 Outlook: We finally have a good amount of pitching. We’ve struggled with that the past few years. The depth of our pitching is our biggest strength. We have returning starters who will be in the top of our lineup. With no juniors on the team, our biggest weakness is our lack of experience. We are hoping our 5 seniors will play a vital role in helping our young players adapt to varsity softball.
