2017 Lady Timberwolves Season Overview

Northwood Softball seeks its 8th consecutive CIF berth in 2017. As a frame of reference the next longest streak in the PCL is 2 years. The Lady T'Wolves will go through the typically challenging non-league schedule to prepare them for what looks to be a very competitive PCL season with Beckman, Irvine, Woodbridge and Northwood all evenly matched. In addition to the on field success, the program's investments in batting cages, fencing, the announcer's shed, etc. make it one of the best on-campus facilities in southern California. And as pictured Coach Ota works hard on maintaining the field. While the team remains very young with only two seniors, it is also very experienced with several juniors and sophomores among returning varsity starters. Co-captain senior Jordan Tyo will return for her 4th varsity year and co-captain senior Rachel Kenison for her third. Returning juniors include Jesslyn Lee, Hot Rod Zaffino, Kaitlyn Lologo, Kiki Besnard and Sophia James. Returning sophomores include Leilani Brown, Sydney Guanga and Emma McMurray. Talented freshman Miranda Mell rounds out the roster. With 8 of 9 starters and all 3 pitchers returning it looks to be another exciting season for Northwood softball!
