Logan looks to have an improved squad; Cass is rebuilding

Logan looks to have an improved squad; Cass is rebuilding

(Continued)

The Berries lost to Jeff 12-11 in a sectional game last year. Harrison defeated Jeff 4-3 in the sectional final and then knocked off Hamilton Southeastern 4-3 in regional play before a 6-0 loss to Huntington in the regional final.

The Berries will get an early look at Harrison as they host the Raiders to open the season on Wednesday with a 6 p.m. first pitch.

Cass

The Kings went 16-13 last year and finished particularly strong, knocking off a highly ranked North Miami squad 7-1 in the sectional final. It was the second straight year the Kings upset the Warriors in sectional play. They then were defeated by Carroll 2-1 in a regional game.

But the Kings have lost nine seniors from a year ago including their top two pitchers. They’re not completely starting over as they do have some starters back.

Hailey Holt, Cheyenne Dittmaier and freshman Savannah Thompson are all options in the pitcher’s circle. Dittmaier was an All-Loganland shortstop a year ago when she hit .342 as a sophomore.

Kassi Zeck started a year ago and is moving to catcher this year. Miranda Cunningham is also an option there, as is Sidney Stuber.

Alexa Humerickhouse, who started as a freshman a year ago, returns at first base. Holt also plays first. Meghan Hall returns at second. Dittmaier, Ashton McClain and Thompson play shortstop. McClain and Holt are the third basemen.

Sydnye Combs, Logan Henry, Emily Galloway and Thompson all play outfield.

“We don’t have it figured out completely yet. We’re moving people around,” Scott said. “We lost nine seniors and there are gaps we’re trying to fill. We have multiple pitchers and we’re moving people around.”

The Kings have just 16 girls out for the team this year so they won’t have a JV.

The Kings don’t have to worry about North Miami this year as the Warriors have moved to Class A.
