Season Outlook

The Union University softball program is looking to build on a runner-up finish in the TranSouth Conference from last season, their highest regular season finish since 2006. Union head coach Heather Hall returns 11 players, including her entire pitching staff. Union adds six newcomers to the mix in hopes of winning a TranSouth title for the seventh time, and first since 2004.

Union has just two seniors on the squad including Brittany Burkett and Amber Hayes. Hayes was an all-conference selection at first base last season, while Burkett has been a solid infielder at second and third base.

The junior class includes five players, four of which are returning. Ali Bozza, Katie Davis, Hailee Edwards and Carmesha Owens all return with starting experience. Toby Joy sat out last season after transferring in but will contribute as the lead-off hitter and in the pitching circle.

Five sophomores return after major contributions as freshman. Keaton Kirk and Brooke Thomas return as starting pitchers and everyday players who both earned all-conference honors last season. Stephanie Saunders, Sam Giesler and Britney Garner also return. Saunders and Giesler started as freshmen.

The freshman class has five players that are beginning their college careers. Caroline George sat out last season with a medical red-shirt but will provide a solid arm in the pitching circle. CJ Browder, Katie Beth Fesmire, Shelby Lamb and Miranda Mullen each come in as young players that will be called on early and often to contribute to the success of the team.

Hall is now in her fourth season with Union. She is just three wins shy of reach 100 for her career (97-61, .614).
