New Hope-Solebury Softball Preview


Coach:  Chris Marchok (11thSeason)

Assistant coaches: Erica Rudysyle, Wayne Cunningham, Marcos Elizondo

Last year’s record:  4-14, 3-13 SOL

Notable losses:  Five senior starters, including co-MVP’s Ciara Carter and Emily Primavera

Key returners:  Emily Wilson (P/So), Jackie Herbert (3B/So), Helen Knapp (RF/Jr), Devon Maguire (C/2B/So), Izzy Elizondo (SS/C/So), Ella Dudick (OF/So)

Others to watch:  Kaylee Harris (1B/Fr), Bianca Elizondo (2B/Fr), Amalie Marino (OF/P/So), Elizabeth Migliaccio (OF/Fr), Isabella Jermyn (OF/So), Elena Shire (CF/Fr)

Strengths/Question Marks:  Big strength will be the strong leadership of a very young club.  Emily Wilson on the mound and Helen Knapp in RF will lead a very enthusiastic crew that is comprised of almost all freshmen and sophomores.

Outlook:  “The Lady Lions are excited to begin the youth movement as this crew of almost all freshmen and sophomores has been working hard and is excited to continue learning and competing.”
