MFL MarMac softball will rely on pitching, defense

By Audrey Posten, Times-Register

With five offensively-productive seniors lost to graduation, the MFL MarMac softball team will rely on its pitching and defense to carry the load this season.

“But even though we lost the seniors, we have youngsters that got tested last year,” said head coach Jerald Kleve, who’s entering his fifth season at MFL MarMac. Pat Wille is in her second season as assistant coach.

“Lauren Haberichter and Mackenzy Ruff have been throwing [leading up to the season],” Kleve added, “and our infielders have a lot of experience, with senior Keri Picha back after missing last season with knee surgery.”
