The 2014-2015 Lady Westerners will look to compete for the conference crown and return to the Region V West Softball Tournament this season. We will have a group of fast, athletic and powerful players this season. These ladies are looking to come in and get the program back on the winning track. Our roster will have players from different parts of the country. The roster will have players from Hawaii, The Netherlands, Florida, Oklahoma, California, New Mexico and Texas. We have gone out and recruited some kids that know a lot about the game, that are versatile and equipped with a lot of talent.
Expectations will be high from the coaching staff for this group because they are beyond capable of reaching the highest level of achievement in both the classroom and on the field. Our returning sophomores are players that were loyal to the program and coaching staff as well as the team on the field. They showed respect to coaches, worked hard and always stayed after practice to do extra on a daily basis. I believe they understand what it takes for us to be successful as a group and that losing the team concept at any point could be what keeps us from reaching the playoffs again this season.
The Lady Westerners have a chance to be very successful due to the talent and winning background of our incoming freshman. As well as the talent and amount of experience gained by our sophomore class and the team oriented mindset of both the freshman and sophomore classes. These ladies are going to fight everyday and give it their all each time they step on the field. There are no players on this team concerned with just their statistics. They want to achieve greatness as a collective group.
The 2014-2015 Lady Westerner Softball team will compete in 20 plus fall scrimmages and 50 plus games during the spring. At the end of the season we hope to be at the regional tournament in Lubbock, Texas May 1st-3rd competing for a national championship berth in St. George, Utah. See you in the stands!!
