---- — With only one senior on the roster, it will be a new-look for the Zionsville softball team in 2014. Head coach Lori Esparza said that she is ready to coach this team. "I am super excited about a young group coming in," Esparza said. "They are extremely talented, they are just young. They are going to take some time, but the advantage to that is that they are going to have a couple of years to grow together. We have more depth than we have had in previous years and we are super excited about that." With such a young team, Esparza said they don't have tangible win/loss goals for the season. The main thing the Eagles want to is continually improving throughout the season. "We just want to take our time and work on skill development," Esparza said. "They are already coming in with some chemistry, so that is nice. They are going to have to put in perspective that they are playing against kids who are years older than them, so a win is a bigger win and not to take too much into a loss." While they may be inexperienced in terms of varsity action, the Eagles have had plenty of success. The players that were in the program saw the Eagles advance to the sectional title game last season, before falling to Hamilton Southeastern.
