Lady Raiders packed with depth

July 30, 2010

Tomorrow will be the official start of the 2010 fast pitch softball season for the Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders.
In 2009, the girls were runners-up in their district, but this year, they are hoping their depth can take them to a district title.
“I’ve got four girls who can play every position for me,” said Oak Hill head coach Marion Bratton.
Bratton says that last season’s injuries allowed some girls who normally would not have played to get experience, and that has given the team depth in 2010.
“It means a lot if somebody goes down,” Bratton says. “It gives you some options.”
