The Westport Lady Eagles varsity softball team will be looking to replace several key players lost to graduation, and head coach Michael “Ike” Tyler feels the team will grow throughout the year.

“We were hit hard by graduation losing four starters and a bunch of our offense from last year as well as our number one pitcher,” Tyler said. “But with our returning players and some promising modified players we look to improve as the year goes on. How quickly the younger players adapt to the faster speed on the varsity level will determine how fast we will be able to compete with some of the better teams in the league.”
