GALION — Galion’s girls softball returns its entire roster from a year ago, and a few talented newcomers, too. Last season, Galion made a solid postseason run with just 11 girls on the team, with no junior varsity talent to move up in a pinch.
But this year, the program has 23 girls suited up for fourth-year head coach Doug Hunt, who entered the year with a 41-32 overall record. He has 10 returning letterwinners and nine returning starters.
Back are Madelyn Thomas, Emily Sedmak, Gracie Groves, Kayden Caudill, Kate Schieber, Nevaeh Clark, Nicole Thomas (sat out 2018), Gabby Kaple and Maddy Harmon. Joining them are newcomers Teanna Greter, Emily McDonald, Lydia McCabe, Kylie McKee, Haley Hunter, Kennedy Gifford and Natalee Perkins who all hope to make an impact.
“We have 23 girls out for the team this season as compared to just 11 a season ago,” Hunt said. “Our squad is all about teamwork. We must continue to work hard and improve in all aspects of our collective game, especially offensive production. We play in an incredibly difficult conference but we’re looking to stay competitive throughout the season…having more numbers this year means more options and more to come for the Galion Lady Tigers softball program.”
He hopes by the end of the year, his team is ready for another successful post season run.
