Softball player: Season ‘will come down to our mental game’

By Dean Greenwood, Reporter

The Shenandoah University softball team kicks off their season with a 10 a.m. contest this Saturday at the Salem Tournament.

The Hornets had a disappointing season last year going 8-30. Last season the Hornets won only three home games and just one away game. In neutral contests they won all four of their games played.

The team is coached by Marlea Kotynski, Shenandoah will have three senior captains this season: Ashlyn Drake, Lindsay Corbin and Karli Rorabaugh.

The Hornets only lost one senior this year, but that is a huge loss. Kimberly Brady lead the team with 10 home runs out of 19 total last season.

Sophomore Breanne Smith said, “The loss of Kimmy is huge, but we have eight incoming freshman this season.” Having this many new faces, and many returning players will help the Hornets this season.

The ladies scored a total of 140 runs with a .272 batting percentage last year. They also had 19 home Runs.

Smith said, “We have the talent, it just will come down to our mental game.”

Shenandoah seeks to start off their season on a good note with a couple wins this weekend.
