Cats Preparing for Banner 2016 Season

El Nino has taken a break, the field has dried up, and the Los Gatos High School softball teams are busy at work preparing for the 2016 season.

This year's varsity team will try and improve on its 17-12 record from a year ago and quarter-final appearance in the CCS finals. Six seniors will lead the way for Los Gatos: captains Madeline Colombo, Maddy Lucey and Camille Hench along with Sydney Tucker, Julianna Callahan and Emma Rochel.

Joining the team from last year's championship JV squad are juniors Jocie Potmesil, Makenna Moore and Maddie Laskey, along with sophomore Serafina Johnson.

Eight freshman will join the program this year and play JV: Ava Currie, Virginia Herr, Rachel Ice-Crespo, Amber Kelly, Sarah Lasher, Maddie  Moore, Jordan Pache and Alexa Wong. Returning sophomores are tri-captains Annika Briski, Macy Zech and Erin Kiuttu along with Natalie Mercik, and Audrey Wehner joins the program as a new sophomore.

Both varsity and JV will open the season with scrimmages at San Lorenzo Valley High School on Tuesday, February 23. The teams will play a second scrimmage on Friday, February 26 at Pioneer. The season officially opens on Thursday, March 3 with the varsity playing at Prospect and the JV hosting the Panthers.
