continued Overall, the team returns six players from the 2012 squad that went 14-3 and made their second straight Class D title game.
Monty will look to the experience provided by senior catcher Jen McGinn to help his new pitching staff while the offense will be led from the top of the order and senior speedster Kylee Cassavaugh.
“Kylee Cassavaugh will set a new state record for career stolen bases this year,” Monty said. “The leader graduated last year with 128 stolen bases for her career. Kylee currently has 125 and counting.”
Members of the Lions roster include seniors Kaylee Cross, Cassavaugh, Jessica Spaulding, Sierra Wimett, Emily Morris, Cheyenne Sousis and Jennifer McGinn. Shonna Brooks, who will graduate at the end of the season, is the lone junior on the squad, which also includes sophomores St. Dennis, Barnes, Mitchell, Keturah Colburn-Burdo, Tamara Wescott and Thea Wescott along with freshman Emma Disogra.
The Elizabethtown-Lewis varsity baseball team will focus on the fundamentals in the field as they seek to compete with the rest of the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference in 2013.
“We are looking to play solid defense lead by Hugh Harwood and Austin Morris playing the middle of the infield as return starters from last years squad,” head coach Colby Pulsifer said. “There are new arms in the rotation this year, getting game experience will help the new pitchers as they progress through the season. The Lions are looking to play competitively with everyone this year.”
Members of the Lions roster include Austin Morris, Hugh Harwood, Justin LaPier, Jerry Mitchell, Zac Noka-Bailey, Dominic DeMuro, Noah Farrell, Colden Blades, Cody Gowdy and Tyler Hart.
