Ashley Amato-Senior, 5’6”, Catcher, .432, 32 hits, 8 doubles, 6 triples, 26 RBI’s. All-Area 2nd team. Ashley was our leading hitter last season. She transitioned from SS to Catcher. She was a leader on and off the field as a Captain last season.

Bri Hunter- Junior, 5’8”, 3B, .338, 24 hits, 5 doubles, 3 triples, 3 HR, 17 RBI’s,.903 fielding. All-Area Honorable Mention. Bri’s defense was her strong suit last season. We look forward to watching her pick up where she left off on the field and as a leader off the field as well.

Karlye came in as a Freshman and made her mark through the league as well as the district. She’s gotten even stronger in the off season and we’re ready to watch her continue to grow on the mound.

Brooklynn Lucas- Sophmore, 5’9”, 1B, .378, 28 hits, 2 doubles, 3 triples, 20 RBI’s. All-Area Honorable mention. Brooklynn came in strong at the plate as a Freshman and her maturity and strength has only improved.

2023 Outlook: We’re super excited to get back playing together as a team. We only lost one Senior last season so we are looking to finish strong and be back in post season playoffs and districts.

Continuing our positive plate appearances is key to continuing our success!
