2016 Liberty Softball Preview

The loss of Lyndsay Johnson and Megan Gatta will leave a void in the terms of two four-year starters.

2016 Liberty Softball Preview
Head Coach: Andrew Wilde, 1st season
2015 Record: 8-12 (2-6), AAC Blue

Key Losses: The Leopards lost a trio of key seniors from last year’s roster in pitchers Megan Gatta and Lyndsay Johnson – who started all four years – as well as Kat Serrano.

Key Returnees: Senior Syndey Johnson – Lynday’s younger sister – appears to be the team’s starting pitcher. Her classmates Amy Mikulich (3B), Raven Watson (2B), Allie Adler (1B) and Joy Griffin (OF) also return. Juniors Sam Serrano (SS), Marissa Gutierrez (C) and Allie Longo (P) will also be back in the fold for the Lady Leopards. Newcomers to this year’s roster will be senior Marcy Dykes (IF/OF) and freshmen Morgan Orr (LF) and Melanie Bardol (C/Util).

Outlook: The experience returning and the depth at most positions is what concerns coach Wilde.
