Any Additional Information:  Portville Softball is returning three starters from our 2021 campaign.  Six players of our twelve-lady roster are veterans at the varsity level. While we have a number of young players in key positions this year and some “on the job” training will be critical, our new comers are no strangers to success. Our achievements this season will hinge on the ability of our returning players to continue to grow as softball players and use their leadership skills to help transition the younger players into their new roles. We return a veteran pitcher with a solid defense behind her that has the ability to make big plays defensively, if we can limit errors and continue to grow as hitters; I am optimistic and anxious to see what the 2022 season has in store for us.
