Conway softball will be a young team this year looking to climb back above .500.
“We have a bunch of athletes coming out this year that haven’t played in the past couple years, and a solid group of returning players, and several freshmen that will make our work this spring exciting, but leaves our varsity competition wide open this year,” Conway coach Ben Phillips said.
Reagan Dame will be a leader for a young Lady Bears team that has just three upperclassmen on the roster.
We have to focus on the fundamentals this year, find our pitchers, and our identity as a team,” Phillips said. “Obviously everyone wants to win, but we need to become a fundamentally sound team and learn how to grow as a team this year so we can build success every year.”
