2015 Lake Mead Softball Capsule


Head coach: Erika Hetzer, first season

2014 record: 2-17 (2-12 Division III Southern, seventh)

Returning starters: Four

Top players: SS Savannah Schmidt (Sr.), C Josey White (Fr.)

Outlook: Hetzer inherits a team that brings back just four starters.

“We have a lot of girls coming out to play for the first time,” Hetzer said. “A lot of them play volleyball or basketball, so they are athletes and are picking up the game quickly.

“Returning senior Savannah Schmidt will be a great leader and lead with her hard-working attitude. Having Josey White, an experienced freshman, behind the plate will help guide and direct the inexperienced players.

“I came to this school to build a program, and that is what I intend to do. I know it won’t happen overnight, but we are taking the steps to get there.”
