Lycoming selected 6th in poll for college softball

After earning the No. 5 seed in their first season in the MAC Freedom, the Lycoming College softball team was selected to finish sixth in the MAC Freedom Softball Coaches’ Preseason Poll.

The Warriors, with 26 votes, tied with Wilkes in the poll. Stevens topped the poll, receiving 59 votes. Arcadia (56) with two first place votes, Misericordia (55) with two first place votes, King’s (43), and DeSales (33) rounded out the top five.

The Warriors fell to King’s in the MAC Freedom Championship quarterfinals in 2021. The Warriors finished with a 10-16 record under eight-year coach Melissa Montoro after finishing fifth in the conference with a 9-9 record in conference play, the team’s best conference record since 2011.

Junior outfielder Morgan Wetzel (Central Mountain) returns, having led the Warriors with a .423 batting average. Wetzel, a second-team All-MAC Freedom outfielder, also led the team with 33 hits, one triple, four home runs, and 17 RBI in 2021.
