Marlette Varsity Softball

Head Coach: Duane Pitts
Key returning athletes: (please include grade) Courtney Quade (12th grade), Kaylee Stover (10th grade), Hannah Kady (10th grade), Nicole Richardson (12th)
Comments on returning players: Quade and Stover will have to help pave the way and a lot of others will need to find their role on the team and fill in from there. We do have some very talented freshmen, whom spend a lot of time working on the game of softball, coming in to help this season, so that should make for some competitive practices which in turn will make the whole team better.
Lost to graduation: Lily Solgat (first base)
New athletes to the team: (please include grade) Halle Reed (freshmen), McKenzie Wilhelmsen (freshmen), Sydney Parker (freshmen), Kelsey Fischer (sophomore)
Comments about your team’s strengths/weaknesses and any goals for the season: “We are a lot deeper than we have been in the last few seasons. We will need to see how everyone accepts their role on this year’s team. We are young in a few key spots this season, so that could mean some growing pains, but it doesn’t have too.
Outlook for your league – Where do you see you team fitting in? Our league is very tough with the like of Ubly, Sandusky, Brown City. Memphis and Harbor Beach have been much improved the last couple of seasons too. Nothing can be taken for granted. We just need to work hard each day and get better. We have to improve our chemistry with one another and that will take place, as we get out on the field more.
