Christa Williams enters her seventh season leading the Friendswood Mustangs and they have a solid team back with six starters returning. Caylynn Esparaza (Ole Miss) leads the crew behind the plate, at third base, and at the dish with her bat. Patricia Yarotsky (Sam Houston State) holds it down at shortstop, in the circle, and possesses some "great wheels". Chloe Riassetto (University of Louisiana at Lafayette) has experience, which pairs well with sophomore Janelle Wilson. Lauren Adams (LSU Eunice), Michyla Saenz (Austin College), Maddie Wilson, and Lainie Schaeffer are others to take note of. Building team chemistry will be big for this group in 2021.
