continued Tyler said that the key on the mound will be for the pitchers to be consistent in the strike zone as they throw to one of the top catchers in the region.
“Brendee Russell returns from last year as a first team All League selection as catcher,” Tyler said. “If our pitchers can throw strikes on a consistent basis, we should be able to have some fun this year.”
The Eagles roster includes seniors Rachel Abrahamsen and Charlotte Staats; juniors Felicia Kurth, Megan Sudduth, Emily Rascoe, Russell, Hannah Looby and Sarah Looby; and sophomores Ellie Schwoebel, Sydney Mitchell, Talite Malafu and Keragen Viens. Tyler will be assisted by Brad Rascoe.
The Westport varsity golf team will have five members returning in 2013, along with a core of new golfers that will provide depth in the program.
“We have five returning from last year and six new golfers,” said Paul Mudie, who coaches the team along with Dan McCormick. “It’s a good mix of experience and beginners.”
The Eagles will be led by freshman Anderson Gay, who was a day two sectional competitor last season and hopes to improve this season.
“Juniors Jesse Misarski and Cheyenne White along with freshmen Connor Martin and Ryan Mead provide experience should be very competitive,” Mudie said.
Newcomers to the team include senior Garrett Reynolds, junior Alexis Foote, freshman Austin Harrison and seventh graders Nash Dickerson, Riley Martin and Zach Burgenstock.
The Westport Eagles varsity baseball team will have a fresh look on the mound in 2013.
“We lost all three of our starting pitchers from last year’s team but we begin this year with a new group of pitchers and a positive attitude,” head coach Don Markwica said. “Sam Napper will be getting the nod as one of our starting pitchers. He will be joined in the starting rotation with fellow freshman Dylan Limlaw, who has shown promise in practice.”
