This may be the most challenging year for Yorktown softball coach Michael Blaschke with only one full-time starter and three part-time starters.
Blaschke said, “This is the youngest and most inexperienced team I have ever had. No one on the team has ever pitched before.”
Returning to the roster are seniors Kendalyn Naranjo - centerfield, Raegan Cunningham-pitcher, catcher, third and first base; and sophomores Stephanie Mattox- pitcher, first and third base, and Rebecca Mireles- outfield.
The team consists of two seniors, one junior, two sophomores, and six freshman.
However, Blaschke is encouraged. He said, “This team is fun to coach. They are eager to learn and they are hard workers. We have two great assistant coaches (Crystal Martinez and Chelsea Hoffman) who are doing a fantastic job of developing these young players.”
