The 2018 Hillcrest softball team is going to be one to watch for. The lady Huskies are returning several good players, such as Jeslyn Sundquist and the Aragundi twins, who have varsity experience. The sophomore team also did a great job developing the younger girls.

“We will have to rely on underclassman pitchers, due to Oakley Small having shoulder surgery this December,” said Carrell

Coach Carrell is pretty excited about the year, even though Oakley Small, there best pitcher, is sidelined. Carol hopes the team will have its best season in 10 years and return to the playoffs, although this will be tough playing in a good softball region.

A good gauge to see where the team is at will be the tournament in St. George. The tournament is the ninth and tenth of March.

“With everyone doing they thing they love we can all grow together as a team and learn how to really play the game,” said Senior leader Jeslyn Sundquist.

Another player to watch for is Junior Stephanie Aragundi. “I’ve been practicing a lot and doing reps and feel that I am a lot better than i was last year,” said Aragundi.

Don’t be surprised when the Hillcrest softball team exceeds expectation and makes the state playoffs for the first time in over 10 years.
