Varsity Softball


The Holton varsity softball team will feature a new-look starting lineup in 2019 which will allow several newcomers to step up right from the start. With several freshmen and first-time varsity players battling for starting spots and specific roles with this year's team the coaching staff is excited with the attitude and effort this group has put forward already. The wave of new talent that is part of this year’s team will allow Holton to be competitive continuing Holton’s winning culture. Returning are senior captains Katie Smith ‘19 and Maggie Meinhardt ’19 and juniors Jemma Bazemore ’20, Jumana Schmidt ’20, Kaley Katz ’20, Lillian Broeksmit ’20, Morgan Bedingfield ‘20 and Renata Taylor-Smith ‘20 as the other upperclassmen on the roster.

The team has a lot of energy; they are dedicated to pushing themselves to be better every day. They are a team that everything works together, they play great defense, and have hitters who can deliver the timely hit and runners that are aggressive and take some chances. This is a young, but very athletic team and will be an exciting team for fans to enjoy throughout the season. Go Panthers!
