The Lady Roadrunners are looking to vastly improve on last season’s disappointing 7-14 mark as this year’s softball campaign gets underway. Holbrook opened the season at home against St. Johns on Wednesday, and will host Show Low on Tuesday, March 4, then welcome in Joseph City the following afternoon. The Roadrunners will compete in the Maricopa Tournament on Friday and Saturday, March 7 and 8.
Coach Claude Bakurza has four seniors on this year’s roster who are set to lead the team, including Captains Alizia Foster, Demo Perkins and Tess Baldonado, as well as Amber Shelendewa. Juniors on the varsity roster include Brandi Cline, Davi Reyes, Elizabeth Luna, Kylah Spangler, Lauren Silversmith and Mariah Cummings. Sophomores are Alex Jeffers-Sample and Elizabeth Luna. Jadiana Perez is the only freshman on the roster at this point.
