County girls prepare to take the field

Johnson led the team with a .484 batting average and four home runs. The first-team all-Sagamore Conference selection also added 21 RBI and 17 stolen bases.

“Claire is the most dedicated softball player I’ve seen in a long time,” Rogers said. “She brings that level of dedication and experience to our team. Claire plays softball year round and has even spent a few Friday nights in the batting cages at TWHS. Claire continues to improve and I look forward to what she has to show us throughout this season.”

The Bruins have seven returning starters in seniors Kaitlyn Settlemoir, Alyssa Clark, Taylor Heath, Kari Sellers, Heather Chastain, and Taylor Baggett. Sophomore pitcher Lacy Meyer also returns for a solid, experienced core for Tri-West in 2013.

“We’re lucky this season with the high level of experience that we have and at this time we’ll be counting on mostly returners and a few newcomers to contribute to this season,” Rogers said.

She said the Bruins will look to build off of last year’s postseason’s success.

“Last year’s sectional games were close, tough games and we managed to come out on top,” Rogers said. “If anything else, making a regional appearance gives them experience and confidence and, most importantly, motivation to continue further in the tournament this year.”

Brownsburg

After graduating eight seniors from last season, the Brownsburg softball team will be looking to help replace those cleats, and experience, in 2013. But replacing that leadership from a squad that went 16-13 will not be an easy task.

“Our juniors and seniors this year have already stepped up and taken ownership of the team,” Brownsburg coach Alyssa Huffman said. “In addition to leadership, they also have a great skill set. Plus, they are not just softball players, they are athletes. And when we combine that with some very talented and athletic underclassmen, we should be able to take our defensive skills to the next level and keep our program moving in the right direction.”
