Young LHS Softball Looks to be More Competitive

KSCB News - March 29, 2016 2:06 pm

Liberal’s softball team has one win in the past two seasons combined. So second year head coach Hope Cox is looking for some low hanging fruit when it comes to attainable goals for her team. Trying to be more competitive and trying to win more innings than they did last year are among the goals for a program which went 0-19 two seasons ago and 1-20 last season. Liberal went 3-18, 6-15, 9-12, and 7-14 before the program bottoming out the past two seasons.

Liberal will be young in the pitcher’s circle this season with freshmen Kaeleah Chaloupek and Alexia Torres. They will be backed by Jr. catcher Esmeralda Garcia. Senior Sarah Arriaga moves from catcher to first base for her last season. Sr. Jordan Urban returns at second base. There is competition for the shortstop position with So. Zuhey Guillen, Jr. Tierra Stoney, and Fr. Alexia Torres. Jr. Hannah Chacon will play third. Senior Sandra Armendariz roams center field while Jr. Alize Tatum is in left and there will be a variety of players. Sophomore Sarah Aichele, freshmen Mikayla Zapien, and Khiley Davis will figure into the lineup as well.

Cox is encouraged by several factors leading into the season. LHS has players who can play more than one position and has three switch hitters in the lineup. LHS was featured during the Tuesday morning Sportsguys.
