“We are trying to improve our softball facility and I am happy to see our field get a little face lift over the summer,” said head coach Jessica Hanaseth-Rodgers. “The new grass is great and I am sure our players will enjoy the new look of our playing field.”
Saint Mary’s won 11 of its 19 home games in 2013 and lose only two seniors to graduation. The Gaels return All-Pacific Coast Softball Conference selection Brittany Sabatini and Lujane Mussadi who went 13-13 with a 2.40 ERA in 190.2 innings as a freshman.
The Gaels will look to build on a 2013 season in which Saint Mary’s won 8-of-9 late, including a win over No. 15 Stanford. This will be the first season of West Coast Conference softball.
