Her goal is to make a deep run in the playoffs. Pollard said they should be able to make a good playoff run.
The team has a lot more spirit this year and is better. Pollard said she is proud of her team and confident in their abilities. Already, they are talking a lot more on defense and how to cover the bases and base runners.
“We have better Chemistry on the field and better communication,” Pollard said. “We have improved, and with every practice, we get better. It’s important to communicate well. If you can’t communicate, the ball goes everywhere. You have to listen to your teammates, and the game goes better.”
