"Practice has been going very well and I am looking forward to getting outside and playing some games," said Giese. "I am very excited about the softball team this year. We have seven players that started games last year and some freshman that saw some action returning." Pitching is always the key and Giese says that he is seeing some very promising things out of freshman Alexis Adelman, senior Amber Scherer Fredrichsen and Taylor Kuechenmeis- ter. "We have quite a bit of speed and we will be very aggressive on the bases to try to produce runs," said Giese. "Defensively we look pretty solid and if we can eliminate errors and hit like we can we should win some games this year."
