The Burgin Lady Bulldogs Softball Team doesn’t have a lot of players, but their lack of depth doesn’t mean they have a lack of talent.
Burgin softball coach Matt Frederick says even though his team doesn’t bolster a large roster he likes the talent he sees.
“I think we have made some obvious improvements from last season. We had about five players who were taking lessons during the offseason. and we also had several girls who played AAU, so that is helpful,” said Frederick.
One of the biggest pieces to the puzzle for the Lady Bulldogs will be the chemistry between their pitcher, Elizabeth Adams, and catcher, Audrey Frederick.
“Lizzie (Adams) was working on pitching lessons, while Audrey was working on catching lessons this offseason. Those two work really well together,” said Frederick.
Adams is way more to the team than just a pitcher, though. According to Frederick she is the heart of the team.
“She (Adams) is a lot more mature than she was last year. I think she is a lot more confident. She has several more pitches in her arsenal this season, so she has about four or five pitches she can really throw now. Most of all, though, she brings leadership and is what we expect a team captain to be,” said Frederick.
