LITTLE RIVER – After going winless in 2021, the Little River softball team will be looking for wins and success in 2022 under the direction of new head coach, Brent Clark.
While coach Clark is in his first year at the helm of the Lady Redskin softball program, he has coached softball previously for a couple of seasons at Wilson High School.
The Lady Redskins will be counting on juniors Courtney Stansbury and Victoria Norez to lead the team as they make the team’s starting battery with Stansbury at pitcher and Norez behind the plate at catcher.
Other Little River softballers that will be looking to build some wins for 2022 are senior Madison Collins in the outfield, junior Sammie See at shortstop and outfield, and sophomore Adison Skinner in the outfield.
Coach Clark will also be counting on a pair of newcomers to the team for help as well in Katie Collins as a pitcher and outfielder while freshman Jailyn Millar is hoping to fill a shortstop spot when not pitching.
In his brief pre-season reflections on the upcoming 2022 season, coach Clark noted, “We are very young and inexperienced at most positions. The plan is to work hard and get better as the season progresses.”
The Lady Redskin softball team will open the 2022 season with two home matchups as they play host to rival Inman on Tuesday, March 29 before hosting Canton/Galva on Thursday, March 31.
