Trowbridge hopes to have strong senior season

LEROY -- Cayla Trowbridge is expected to be among Pine River's top performers this season under coach Mike Nelson.

She's a senior with four years of varsity experience.

The 2019 season "wasn't as great as I'd hope it would be," Trowbridge said. "It could have gone a little better. I hope this year, we look promising, more improved than last year."

Trowbridge played third base and caught last year.

"This year, we don't have set positions yet but have been bouncing around the infield," Trowbridge said prior to the suspension of practice because of the coronavirus. "I feel that I'm very good at getting the ball."

Trowbridge also plays volleyball at Pine River. "I prefer volleyball but I think I'm better at softball," she said.

The Bucks are scheduled to open their season at Kingsley on April 14.

"We're pretty young," Trowbridge said. "There's only two seniors and a few juniors. There's a lot of freshmen. They have pretty good talent for their age."

The virus issue "is going to be pretty hard for a team being so young to improve and get that chemistry we need," Trowbridge said.
