An already very young Clinton Lady Maroons varsity softball squad is deal with some early season challenges.
Head Coach Andrea Rhoades indicates they have been bit by the injury bug in the early season so they are asking some players to take on unfamiliar roles and young players to step up.
Coach Rhoades explains some of the injuries they are dealing with are from players they had hoped would be key contributors this year but gives credit to the girls they've asked to try out new positions and step up in bigger roles.
Coach Rhoades praises the way the team enjoys being around each other and the way her seniors are mentoring the young players they have.
The Lady Maroons roster breaks down to four seniors, two juniors, six sophomores and five freshman. Clinton has started the season 0-2 and will be in action this afternooon taking on GCMS.
