PORT HENRY - The Moriah softball team will have a new look in 2010.
The Vikings lost seven starters from last season's 10-9 club and most of the returning players will be in new positions this spring.
"It will be a rebuilding season this year after losing seven starters," Coach Billie Jo Simpson said. "Just about everyone will be playing a new position, except my pitcher. We have a very versatile team that I can move around to play various positions, both infield and outfield."
Samantha Slattery returns as the Viking pitcher after a strong season in 2009.
A senior, she'll provide veteran leadership along with Jenna Boyea, Jarrah Jerdo, Chelsea MacDougal and Dana Aurilio. All are infielders, although they can also see time in the outfield.
"Our five returning seniors will have to provide a lot of leadership to the younger players," Simpson said.
Rounding out the roster are catcher Hayley Waldron, infielder Jamie Poirier, shortstop Lauren Pelkey and outfielders Stephanie Mauran, Caitlin Williams, Emily Cutting and Emily Larkin.
"Once again, we will have to rely on our pitching and defense along with speed to win games," Simpson said.
