Texas Wesleyan sports graduated many players after last season. The Lady Rams’ softball team
lost over half of last year’s team.
After a disappointing 24-26 season in 2014 the Lady Rams look to rebuild.
“We have eight freshmen,” Lady Rams’ second basemen Kendall Kizer states, “eight freshman
and three transfers. I’m the grandma, fifth year senior.”
Returning along with last year’s first team All Conference Kizer are pitcher Amber Marlett (SR),
second team All Conference first baseman Chelsea Anderson (SR), pitcher Amanda Windham
(JR), shortstop Lauren Davis (JR), outfielder Amber Tucker (JR), and outfielder Dani West
Kizer lead the team in hits (52) and batting average (.351). While Marlett lead the team in
wins (14), ERA (1.87), and strikeouts (121). The newcomers will have to learn quickly as the
returning players have high expectations for the upcoming season.
“I wouldn’t call it coping,” said senior Chelsea Anderson. “The returning players and the
incoming 11 this year have already established an awesome bond. I expect a lot to come from
this team this year. Our team has amazing potential.”
“We seem to mesh really well with the new girls,” Junior Amber Tucker said, “and I have high
expectations for our team. And I think we can win conference this year.”
