Could be a big year for the Niners.


Charlotte — The talent level at Charlotte this season is higher than ever; head coach Ashley Chastain has done a tremendous job of mixing existing talent and incoming freshmen with veteran standouts through the transfer portal. The Niners excelled quickly with an East Division championship last season, but couldn’t get the job done in the conference tournament. With that successful season now under their belts, Chastain’s club is in good position to challenge for the NCAA tournament. Reigning C-USA Player of the Year Bailey Vannoy is coming off an injury, but she remains a stellar hitter and steady presence in the batting order. The Niners also boast newcomers to the lineup including ex-Ball State slugger Stacy Payton and former Oregon Duck Lexi Wagner.



Chastain has unlocked a lot of potential in a short amount of time. If her team has good pitching, watch out for them in this league.
