Defense is the foundation of Warrior softball team


Alta-Aurelia’s softball team is coming off a 2019 season where the team placed second in the class 2A state softball tournament. The Warriors lost to North Linn 3-0 in the title game. Overall, A-A was 22-10 last season.
The Warriors lost some quality players to graduation, including Abby Kraemer, who led the team in pitching and hitting. Kraemer was named to the state tournament all-tournament team as were this year’s returning players, freshman Shea Peterson and junior Jessica Larson.
In addition to Peterson and Larson, the Warriors have five other letter winners back. They are juniors Alaina Westphal and Sierra Hill and sophomores Jenna Nielsen, Alli Magnussen and Jocelyn Launderville.
