Central Kitsap Fastpitch | Spring Sports Preview

Central Kitsap Fastpitch

Head coach: Courtney Cotter

2018 record: 8-17 (4-10)

Key players: Paris Agana, so., pitcher; Katelyn Turk, sr., pitcher; Gabby Lazo, sr., second base/outfield; Megan Weber, sr., catcher/outfield; Faith Schenk, jr., catcher/outfield; Gabby Story, jr., second base; Annika Freund, so., first base; Tessa Jepsen, so., third base; Brooke Mimaki, so., shortstop; Sydney Wallis, so., first base/outfield.

Outlook: The Cougars squeaked into the postseason with a large roster of mostly underclassmen, and are still fairly young this year, but are much more experienced. The team should expect to take another step forward and look to break into the top four in the South Sound Conference this year and hopefully get back to the district tournament.
