From Assistant Coach Bamrick: “We are very excited that the early spring weather has allowed us to practice outside four out of five days our first week of the season. Although we graduated nine seniors from the Class of 2020, we have refocused our energy on the present. Our team motto, ‘Unfinished Business,’ has served as our motivation during the off season. These young ladies have formed a sisterhood that spans many years post graduation.

“Thus, the Class of 2021 is determined to do it for the Class of 2020 as last season was lost to Covid. Our goals are to defend our City title and make a strong post season run in Class 3A. We have a great mix of team speed and power. We plan to run bases aggressively to our pressure on our opponents’ defense. We’re going to be fun to watch.”
