“Another great honor for Madi, Sarah, and Marcie (Scoot),” exclaimed first-year Head Coach Josh Baltz. “All three are very hardworking softball players that are self-driven to be the best player they can be. It is very rewarding to see their hard work result in team success and some individual honors!”
