Season outlook: “Out of 6 seniors that left us last year, 5 of them are now playing college softball.They left a very strong program that is growing each year. This year we are looking to improve our overall record. Working together as a team will be key for the Panthers as we lost a lot of starting seniors last year. The young pitching staff of Faith Heyser, Ashley Haggerty and Dani Dare are led by senior catcher Grace Harvey, who will help take control of the field and lead the team."
