MORRISTOWN - Replacing two middle infielders will be the task of the Morristown Girls Softball team this spring under the director of the Danielle Folinio.
I have most of my returning infield back so we should be a stronger team than past. We have potential. With just 10 players on the team this season, our focus is to stay healthy, said Folinio who feels her team can significantly improve last years 4-10 NAC West record.
Graduated from last years team were Erin Fishel and Karissa Bertrand both who played middle infield and outfield.
The Rockets return the athletic battery of sophomore Taylor Piercey and senior catcher Margret Troiano and both major offensive weapons. Sophomore Liz Troiano, another powerful hitter, will play many infield positions after a season at firstbase. Junior Jessica Geddes is back to man thirdbase and is a solid contact hitter. Samantha Green could move into a infield slot and has showngreat potential as a freshman.
Haley Whitmarsh is another freshman who played as a eighth grader while junior Macalla Roberts played centerfield last season. Newcomers are senior Katie Rusaw, sophomore Angelina Aslanyan, and senior Razia Phillips.
The Rockets are set to host Clifton-Fine on Friday after their season opener on Thursday was cancelled at Edwards-Knox.
