continued Hooper said that they will look to find some experience for a young core of pitchers over the season.
The Keene varsity softball team will have the bats, but are looking to their gloves to solidify what they hope is a competitive team in Class D for 2013.
“Despite our ability to hit for power and generate offense, we will be rebuilding defensively this season,” head coach Darrin Seeley said. “We lost six great players from last season, including both of our starting pitchers from last year. We expect great things from Taylor and Tucker Geiger, Megan Hall and Hannah McCabe.”
Seeley said that the team is excited to start the season and is happy to have five new faces on the team, “including our two secret weapons — Louiza Parolin and Chloe Hoa Dinh.”
Returning players include seniors Kari LeClair, Hall, McCabe and Alex Dumas; junior Tucker Geiger, and sophomores Taylor Geiger and Rachelle Goff.
Newcomers include senior Hoa Dinh, junior Parolin and freshmen CiCi Ashe, Grace Sturges and Vanessa Null.
