Patriot girls primed to repeat

CLINTONVILLE - Last year, the AuSable Valley Softball team upset Plattsburgh to capture its first Section VII Class B title in school history. With seven starters returning, they will look to build on that success.

Seniors Shiloh Bourgeois, Heather Braid, Karly Lincoln, and Jessica Meredith, along with juniors Jena Finnegan, Kelly McBrearity, Johanna Recny, and Kayla Taylor contributed heavily to last year's 16-5 overall record.

They will be joined by seniors Alex Hoey and Kyla Kennedy; juniors Brittany Friedrich and Mackenzie Courson; and sophomore Amanda Hamilton.

"Alex Hoey, Kelly McBrearity and Brittany Friedrich will be on the mound for us this season," said head coach Jim Caron. "They have big shoes to fill, taking over for CVAC pitcher-of-the-year Whitney Vincent."

"Our experience and defense should be strengths going into this season," Caron added. "I look for our pitchers to improve throughout the season and be primed for the second half."
