CBHS Drifters varsity softball 2013 season preview

Although the Drifters varsity girls’ softball team started the 2013 regular season off on a winning note, by defeating James Monroe 13-2, during a non-district game, they have struggled with getting in practice time due to weather issues. In addition, they had to play without key starters during the preseason due to girls’ basketball being stretched into the state championship playoffs. However, now that the team has settled down with its normal team practices, players can finally focus on the upcoming season.

As for the player personnel, the Drifters will return all of their underclassman starters from last year. “We’re solid all the way around, but we have to get someone to step up in the outfield,” Drifters head coach Scott Foster said.  Scott is confident that centerfielder Billie Gould will continue to run down fly balls, but like many area teams, the retooling process associated with certain positions is still a work in progress.

Karley Inscoe will finish her high school career as the Drifters’ starting pitcher. Inscoe is the Drifters’ iron lady. Her unwavering ability to log in hundreds of hours on the mound is noteworthy, showing her commitment to the game. With the graduation of former catcher Carley Graves, the Drifters will have to rely on Emily Parks as their field general.

Backing up Inscoe will be teammate Taylor Lee.  Lee was Inscoe’s back-up last season. The third player on Foster’s rotation of pitchers is Deniya Newman. As a middle school pitcher, Newman punished opposing batters with 25 strikeouts. Newman is also the only Drifter to play competitive travel softball during the off season.

The Drifters infield will be composed of the following players: Madison Gorfida (first base), Taylor Lee (second base), Deniya Newman (short stop), McKenzie Conway (third base), and Emily Parks (catcher).
Newcomers who hope to make an impact are Kaitlyn Profitt and Tiffany Allison.

Peering into the Northern Neck District this season, the Drifters certainly have their work cut of them. Whether its Rappahannock or Lancaster, the competition will not be a walk in the park. Defense and clutch hitting will factor into the Drifters’ ultimate fate.

Foster’s assistant coaches are Dennis Sherer and Keith Dickerson. As always, Tina Inscoe will continue to handle the team’s scorekeeping duties.

The Drifters are scheduled to play James Monroe on Thursday, March 21. Game time is 5 p.m.
