Eagles are young, but working hard with optimism for new coach

— “Kim is quick and agile, and will be a strong part of our infield,” DePace said.

Abbie Seamans, the team’s sole 8th grader, is already proving her worth to the team. Against North Warren, she was 3 for 6 with 2 RBIs, DePace observed.

“Abbie is a very fast base runner, and she’s versatile,” DePace said, noting that she is now on duty at shortstop, but is also the team’s backup catcher.

Kaitlin Urtz, a sophomore who transfered in from North Warren, is a valuable addition to the team, DePace said, noting she has a strong throw and is stationed at third base.

They’re joined by solid athletes Olivia Clesceri, a junior at first base; senior Sydney LaPan at center field; and ninth graders Caroline Clesceri and Lindsay Markham in right field.

DePace said she had high expectations for the team.

“They’re very hard workers, they’re optimistic and they try hard no matter what,” she said. “The players have a positive attitude, they encourage each other — It’s a very good mix.”
