Young players key for ELCS Softball

ELIZABETHTOWN - With few players returning from last year's 8-4 team, the upcoming season for Elizabethtown-Lewis Softball will depend heavily on the performance of its up-and-coming players.

Four seniors were lost to graduation, including Riley Diemand, who powered the Lions on the mound and at the plate last year.

This year, ELCS will lean heavily on the five players it has returning, especially sophomore pitching ace Andrea LaVien and senior Chelsea Provost, both of whom were named as All-Stars last season. Underclassmen Alyssa Sullivan, Kaitlyn Coats, and Kylee Cassavaugh also bring valuable experience.

"We are a young team with nine freshman on it," said head coach Jim Monty. "We look to improve as the season progresses."

Sophomore Clare Harwood joins the team this year, along with a host of freshmen: Emily Morris, Kearsten Ashline, Sierra Wimmett, Cheyenne Sousis, Jessica Spaulding, Crystal Grady, Jennifer McGinn, and Kaylee Cross.
