Etzel’s Outlook: “We are excited to start our third season at Manchester Valley. The team has worked hard the past two seasons to build positive relationships and a strong program. The athletes hold each other to high expectations and want to continue the run to states!!

“The team is led by four strong captains; Stephanie Speights, Emily Diseroad, Allison Piper and Rebecca Lefkowitz. We are picking up where we left off at the end of last season. The girls are conditioned and ready to play. We continue to work on strong hits and our passing game.

“The program continues to grow because of the effort of the girls and parents. We are looking forward to a successful season and hope to add more “W’s” to the win column.”
