After having a 16-8 season last year, and only losing two seniors, the Bray-Doyle Lady Donkeys’ slow pitch team has high hopes for the upcoming season. Head coach Frank Moser said he is looking forward to the season, and plans for his girls to get better during the season.

“We want to get better as a team every day,” Moser said. “We want to improve in practice and in games each and every time.”

The Lady Donkeys will have a large team led by four seniors (J’Cee Edwards, Kaily Early, Kyndalin Byrd, and Myckie Gagnon) and a strong underclassmen squad.

“We don’t really have a main leader,” Moser said. “I also don’t have an age requirement on leadership positions. It really comes down to who wants to step up and help lead this team this year.”

For the Lady Donkeys to get in the win column and stay in the win column, Moser said his team needs to play solid defense with few errors.

“If we continue to improve on defense and stay with few errors we will be good,” Moser said. “We have a lot of girls that are good hitters, but we have to play good defense.”

UPDATE: The Lady Donkeys started the season with two wins against Lawton Christian on Monday, March 2.
