Sequoyah softball season starts in 29 days

SEQUOYAH — In 29 days, the road to the Class 4A State Tournament in Oklahoma City begins for the Claremore Sequoyah Lady Eagles softball team.

Claremore Sequoyah, under the leadership of head coach Krystel Markwardt, looks to build on last season’s playoff run that culminated with a 24-9 overall record.

The Lady Eagles reached the Class 4A Regional Tournament, but this year’s team of seasoned veterans wants to go one step further.

Markwardt’s Lady Eagles hunger for that berth in the state tournament at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.

Behind a talented group of seniors — led by centerfielder Makenna McGill, third baseman Amanda Chancellor, shortstop Katy Remy and right fielder Sydney Blue — the Lady Eagles have the nucleus and offensive firepower to make some noise in Class 4A.

The only missing ingredient may be in the circle, where Sequoyah graduated starting pitcher Emily Giles. Looking to fill her shoes will be Jodi Brown.

Brown played sparingly in the circle for the Lady Eagles in 2012, but showed potential during those relief appearances to catch the eye of Markwardt.

The good thing for Brown, though, is she will be a solid defense backing her up, including sophomore catcher Mackenzie Thomas, who returns for her second season behind the plate for Sequoyah.

This year, Sequoyah will officially open the season on Aug. 13 against Haskell. The game will start at 5 p.m. at the Claremore Sequoyah Softball Complex.
