Cougars ready for new season

(Continued)

Morgan Wadsworth and Tailon Graber will be the top two starting pitchers in the circle this season for North Daviess. Both girls enter this season with three years of varsity experience under Berry and she said having them on the mound will be instrumental to a successful 2014 campaign. While the seven seniors will play a big role in determining if North Daviess can win its first sectional title since 2009, the underclassmen will be important as well.

“We’ve got some sophomores stepping up, Sarah Fitzgerald (first base) will be key for us this year,” Berry said. “We’ve got some freshmen, while they may not be prominent early in the season, I think by the end of the year they’ll be putting some pressure on those upperclassmen. One person that will be really important as a freshman is Kayla Knepp (catcher) — she’s a hard worker and a hard-nose ball player and we’re looking forward to what she’s going to be able to contribute this year.”

As it is in boys and girls basketball, the Class Sectional 63 is a gauntlet for all involved as one of the best sectional’s in the state for every sport and Berry recognizes that it’s not an easy road, but her team has the talent to reach some, if not all the goals that have been set for 2014.

“Our expectations are always to be in every game and improve from day one through the end of the season,” Berry said. “To say that we aren’t craving a conference championship and a sectional championship, I think every team in the area would have the same craving. We are hoping we can bring some of that to fruition.”
