Key Losses: The Lady Rockets lost a large senior class last Spring which featured contributors Ryley Urchek, Taylor Lewis, Miranda Wood, Courtney Peters and Kasandra Scott.

Key Returnees: Maplewood’s senior catcher Emilei Patterson and her classmate Rayelle Keeney (outfield) lead a young bunch into 2016. Josie Campbell (JR/1B), Maria Danko (SO/SS), Bailey Lewis (SO/2B) and Merandia Morris (SO/OF) will also be asked to continue their development and help the Rockets towards a successful season. Freshmen Emily Nay and Jaycee Rae will be called upon to contribute in their first season on the varsity level.

Outlook: With losing a large senior class, experience will be tough to come by early on. Eleven players will be sophomores (6) or freshmen (5). The Lady Rockets begin their season with eleven of their first thirteen games away from Cortland.
