The April 5th Senior Day celebrated the careers of Anderson and Dionne, but it was actually the second time they participated in a senior day together.

After losing only one senior from last season, the softball team capitalized on the opportunity to improve this spring with help from many returnees, some new freshman, and a brand new set of coaches.

The Lasers spring break trip to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina was a success, as the team compiled a 5-3 record. Last year the team went 3-7 during the same trip.
