Head coach: Teri Hernandez, seventh season
2013 record: 20-14-1 (8-2 Sunset, second)
Top players: Courtney Gain (Sr.), Alyssa Fata (Jr.), Taylor Cole (Jr.), Brittany Leeds (So.)
Outlook: The Desert Shields lost nine seniors from a team that finished second in the Division I-A Sunset League.
Fata is a workhorse in the circle and tossed the bulk of Cheyenne’s innings last year.
“We will be starting with a relatively young team this year,” Hernandez said. “There is a lot of talent on this team, and I am looking forward to what they are going to bring to the plate.”
