Dimond Lynx eye a return to state softball with new coach at the helm

Anchorage (KTUU) After breaking onto the scene last year, the Dimond Lynx softball team looks to finish what it started with it's runner-up finish at the 2018 state softball tournament.

"The girls have put a lot of work into it. They're doing their thing and it's everything a coach could ask for, really," new head softball coach Lisa Marshall said.

Marshall is the first female head softball in the Anchorage School District in a decade. With her at the helm, the Lynx have their eye on the prize they just missed out on last year.

"We're a really positive, well minded team. We try our best, we try to keep our positivity up, the girls are just great," senior captain Maddison Moser said. "We have skill. It just shows at different times."

The team this year is a tight knit group, which will come in handy as the competition is evenly stacked among the teams this season.

"This year, it could go anywhere. Every team, you can't tell who's going to win each game. You have to wait until it's played," sophomore captain Jazzy Golly said.

While the Lynx are still a fairly young team, with only five seniors, and five freshman on the team, they are more than ready for what lies ahead.

The 2019 Alaska School Activities Association state softball tournament begins on May 30th, 2019.
