2015 Sierra Vista Softball Capsule


Head coach: Keith Ulrich, first season

2014 record: 7-14 (4-6 Northwest, fourth)

Returning letter winners (starters): Nine (seven)

Top players: P Kalei Watkins (So.), IF Kira Felise (Sr.), IF Adrianna Somerville (Sr.), IF Taylor DeGuzman (So.), IF Madison Hiu (Jr.), C Brendee Ford (Jr.), OF Morgan Hughey (Jr.)

Outlook: Ulrich inherits a team that returns seven starters, including second-team all-state selection Watkins, who struck out 126 in 119 innings last season.

“With nine returning letter winners and seven returning starters, the Lions expect to compete for a league title,” Ulrich said. “Seniors Kira Felise and Adrianna Somerville, sophomore Taylor DeGuzman and junior Madison Hiu anchor a solid infield.”
