The upcoming JV softball team is looking forward to having a successful season with a variety of new players. All of the girls have improved over the off-season to show second-year coach Ron Espinola they deserve a spot on the team.
“I’m excited about this season, just going to open gyms and practicing with the girls was super fun,” said Vanessa Lott. “Even though the season has just started, I am confident that all of us girls will get along very well”.
This year’s JV softball team has lost and gained talented players. The team has lost Crisslyn Rodriguez and Presley Hayes to the varsity team. Returning players are Olivia Espinola, Allison Green, Makenna Garcia, and Liliana Aguilar. These girls hope to improve their skills so that they can make the varsity team during their junior year.
“I hope to improve over the season so that I am ready for varsity next year,” said Olivia Espinola. “I have played with some of the girls in the past, and I think the new players will be a good improvement to the team.”
New athletes for the team are Georgia White, Isabel Upton, Kyra Schiermeister, Brenna Schiermeister, Karyn Morton, Vanessa Lott, Ludivynne Canales, Kira Wiley, Elisabeth George, and Fallon Fowler.
The team has a variety of new and returning players, which will hopefully give the team a better outlook for the season.
“It’s always interesting to see how athletes mix together to form a team and how it changes throughout the season as they get to know each other,” said coach Espinola.
