Amanda Riveira, Kellenberg, CF, Sr. — Leadoff batter with great discipline who sets the pace for defending CHSAA state champs. Great range in the outfield.


Alexa Russell, Kellenberg, SS, Jr. — Big bat for the three-time defending CHSAA state champs. Line drive gap hitter who thrives with runners in scoring position.
