This young team has played together for many years through Dixie youth and travel ball. This is the third year in a row to go to Sulphur with more than half of the starters being Freshman. The Freshman class have been playing and starting since 7th grade. They have a solid defense which is their greatest strength. The girls have grown a lot both physically and mentally and still have room to grow.
Freshman Ragan Hale has been starting on this team since she was in 6th grade. She has made 1st team All-District for the past 4 years and All-State her 8th grade year. Freshman Meredith Matt was selected for the All-State team last year.
Five freshman own starting key positions and they are going to be a force to wrecken with for years to come. Freshman starters are Ragan Hale- shortstop, Reagan Davis- 2nd, Maria Bienvenu- 3rd, Meredith Matt- Pitcher, and Chloe Longlois- Left field.
All nine starters made All-District; six on the 1st team and three on the 2nd team
