  • Players to watch: Annie Aspesi- sophomore, Rachel Kolton-sophomore

Coach’s outlook for 2020 season: “This team comes from a winning tradition and a disciplined foundation under coach George Dick. I expect last year’s success to fuel the team this season. Our returning players have kept the culture of family in place that was so important to them last year and each brings leadership to this team helping with new players or players in a new role, as well as a new coaching staff. While the team lost some key players, other players are beginning to step up and gain confidence to fill those positions. “

I have been impressed with the level of athleticism and grit in these players and how open they have been to changes put into place by the coaching staff.  They play moment to moment, they dig in and work hard and they care about each other and with that we expect to repeat appearances in both districts and states.
