Legacy 2013 Softball Capsule


Head coach: Dan Casel, seventh season

2012 record: 18-9 (10-6 Northwest)

Returning letter winners (starters): Eight (Five)

Top players: C Gabby Rinker (So.), P Alysia Santos (Sr.), IF/OF Kiani Elia-Mendiola (Jr.)

Outlook: The rest of the Sunset Region was happy to see Sierra Pico graduate last season.

A four-year standout pitcher, she gave nearly everyone in the region fits. But now Legacy must move on without her.

Santos likely will get the bulk of the work in the circle and can hit, too, posting a .419 average and 20 RBIs last season.

Also returning are a pair of weapons in Rinker (.429, 23 RBIs) and Elia-Mendiola (.373, 21 RBIs).

"We are rebuilding, but have a lot of good young players," Casel said. "We hope to make the playoffs, but we will be very young. We probably will start up to seven underclassmen."
