Head coach: Julia Meyn, third season
2016 record: 30-7 (16-2 Division I Sunset, first)
Returning starters: Seven
Top players: SS/P Alisha Schultz (Jr.), 3B/2B Caitlyn Covington (So.), P Shelbi Denman (Jr.), 1B/P Alyssa Stanley (So.), OF/C Shea Clements (So.)
Outlook: Coming off their first state tournament appearance since 2009, the Mustangs bring back seven starters.
Schultz (.561, 5 HR, 41 RBIs) was a first-team all-state pick last season and has plenty of offensive help around her.
Denman (13-2, 2.02 ERA, 97 IP, 119 K) is one of the top returning pitchers in the state.
“We want to stay focused and defend our region title,” Meyn said.
