Three all-conference returners should lead the Blazers this season. Senior infielders Crystal Marinelli and Danielle Ciaglia and junior outfielder Ari Renc make up the core of a team hoping to improve on a 4-8 record in the West Suburban Gold.

Juniors Kelly Delawder, Alex DiSilvio and Rachel Baumgartner and sophomore Carla Muell should are also returning starters.

"[We] return seven starters from last season, including all three all-conference players and the top three hitters in Marinelli, Renc and Ciaglia," coach Mark Olson said. "We're expecting strong seasons offensively and defensively from Delawder, DiSilvio, Muell, and Baumgartner."

Despite all the returners, many of the key players on the team are still younger. Senior Cori Cooney will play at catcher to join Ciaglia and Marinelli as senior starters.
