Coach (season): John Vasconi (9th season)
2012 overall record: 4-10
2012 region record (place): 3-8 (fifth)
2012 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 playoffs.
Top players lost: None
Top returning players: Annie Papa, Anna Benson, Courtney Sargent, Emilee Taylor, Miranda Torok
Assistant coaches: Doug Scott, Tressa Schill
Outlook: Kennedy Catholic has an experienced team back this season as the Golden Eagles look to turn the program around. Kennedy didn’t lose much to graduation and returns Annie Papa, Anna Benson, Courtney Sargent, Emilee Taylor and Miranda Torok. Sargertown is a returning all-region shortstop, while Taylor and Torok could each see time on the mound. Papa is the returning catcher and Benson is projected to start at first base. Kennedy has good speed and leadership and plenty of potential at pitcher. With four seniors and two juniors set to start, the Golden Eagles have a nice mix of experience and youth that could translate into more wins in a tough region.
