Lady Timberwolves Look Forward to Fast Start in 2014
The Timberwolves spent the first quarter in the weight room doing strength and conditioning twice a week. The program added Vertimax training to it's off season routine to enhance each players speed and quickness. The coaching staff of Blair Ota, John Olesky, and Vaughn Woodruff supervised the well attended biweekly workouts. With the beginning of the second quarter, the Lady T-Wolves moved to twice a week workouts at the softball complex adding throwing and hitting into the workouts. After the semester break, the schedule became more rigorous with practice everyday at the Timberwolf Complex. Returning starters include senior Alyssa Compton, senior Chante Arends, and senior Cyndi Harris. Startiing junior pitchers, Kristin Guaderrama and Emily Bland return with a year of starting experience under their belt. Adding experience are two year letter winner senior Jennivive DeNamur, senior Jordan Wong and junior Kaytlyn Abad. Returning starting shortstop sophomore Mackenzie Curry will contribute heavily once she returns from the soccer team where she is the starting goalie. Also coming from Volleyball will be catcher, Chole Fry who is expected to make the jump to compete for the important position of handling our experienced pitching staff. Newcomer transfer, sophomore Jena Tomashek will back up the starting pitchers and outfielders and gain experience pitching for the JV team along with freshman, Jordan Tyo, a talented left-handed freshman who pitches and plays outfield and first base. With the loss of two year letterman, Sydney Saxton continuing improvement in these two underclassmen and senior starters Wong and DeNamur is vital for the Timberwolves chances in the Pacific Coast League race.
