Expect the Raiders to be be tough and experienced up the middle in 2014.Returning catcher Courtney Cox took a significant step forward as a freshmen catcher and she has taken another step or two forward at the beginning of her sophomore campaign. Expect to see Kimmy Courneya anchor the defense from shortstop or in centerfield. Kimmy was the 2012 Western Region Player of the Year. After sitting out 2013 Kimmy is back to complete her sophomore year.
The Raiders showed in fall ball they have the ability to hit the ball hard and they are very aggressive on the base paths. Expect a dynamic team, faster than the 2013 squad and a team who possesses a high degree of expertise in the execution of short game.
Who to watch? Well the obvious choices are the returning MVP, Kimmy Courneya or the three freshmen pitchers, Kelsi Goodwin, Karlee Rose Perry and Maddy Smith. Other players to watch; two other running slappers with great agility are Lan Nguyen and Amanda Allison. The top freshmen hitter in fall was Molly LaMotte... Molly’s fast too. Last but certainly not least is Brittanie Halquist; you may see Brittanie all over the field defensively and expect her to hit for both power and average.
