With spring sports seasons right around the corner, Roseville’s varsity softball and baseball teams have started their seasons running, each hoping for yet another successful season.

This year there has been a change in the teams in the CVC, adding schools such as Yuba City, Inderkum, River Valley, and Woodcreek; with the loss of Whitney, Oakmont, Del Campo, Ponderosa, and Cosumnes Oaks.

Last year, the softball team placed second in the CVC and made it to the first round of playoffs, losing to Rodriguez High School.

With high hopes comes impactful losses. Notable graduates from last year include Lily Amos, Maddie Amos, Karli Dugger, Amanda Sjoberg and Rachel Shaberman; all five were starters last season.

Senior catcher Sadie Langlet hopes to be a major contributor to the team’s potential success this upcoming season.

This four year varsity player earned the title of first team all-league and MVP of the team last year.

Sophomore third baseman Lauren Mirtoni believes the team’s key to success this season is their chemistry and communication.

“Even though we have a lot of different ages on our team, we’re going to need to bond as a team to do well this season,” Mirtoni said.

Along with Langlet, sophomore pitcher Annie Lemos will need to continue her success from last season after she was pulled up to varsity as a freshman and earned the title of second team all-league behind Langlet.

Junior right fielder Emily Wright believes that even though the season just started, the team has already seen improvements.

“We have a really solid defense and our pitching is better this year and if we utilize these strengths we can go far this season,” Wright said.

Without these players, teammate Josh Alger recognizes the he will need to step up his game to make up for the losses.

Last year, the pitcher was pulled up as a freshman and was third on his team in strikeouts with 23, behind only Lemos and Gather.

Junior catcher Braden Holcomb believes that the companionship of the team could potentially bring them far into the season.

“We work together really well and we have fun when were out there and we always pick each other up and we always have each other’s backs so it’s good for us,” Holcomb said.

This season, captain and starting shortstop Jordyn Berry must take on his leadership role to support the team heading into the season as the team looks to make a solid run for league champions. Berry is going into his third year of varsity baseball.

Teammate junior pitcher and outfielder Dylan Ranallo feels that the change in league might be difficult, but hopes to dominate and go far this season.

“I feel like Woodcreek and Inderkum will bring more competition throughout the league and it will be tougher,” Ranallo said.
