Outlook:  “Despite having half of the starting line-up in 9th or 10th grade, Upper Dublin brings back players that gained great experience last year and have played competitive travel ball through the summer to elevate their game play. Seniors Anna Levin and Kaelin Penna will anchor the middle infield while Kaitlyn Zacharia and Bella Fiore will solidify the defense on the corners. Madden Reilly provides great poise and confidence behind the plate and has already established good rapport with pitcher Kyla Garrison to complete the battery. Rayla Kratchman brings a strong arm with a quick release to center field, and she will be supported by Katelyn Gamburg, Paige Foley and Kaitlyn Small in left & right fields. Lizzie Tambourino brings a strong bat to the lineup, and Emeline Bell will offer tremendous speed on the bases. The girls are excited about the promise and potential that the 2023 season has ahead for them, and after a few non-league games with Dock and Radnor to kick off the season, they are looking forward to getting started in SOL Liberty Division competition.”
