On the other side of the league, they will have Edmeston to contend with yet again.

“Edmeston is going to be a bear this year,” said Weir. “They have a freshmen (pitcher Catherine Johnson) who was clocked at 58 mph over Christmas this past year,” Weir continued.

Johnson was the starting pitcher for the Tri-Valley Champions last season as an eighth-grader as the Panthers beat the Wildcats, 5-2.

“Winning the division is a goal for us this year. We have two seniors and we are trying to put a competitive team back together. Anything after that (winning the division) is icing on the cake,” Weir said.

The schedule for this season is still being put into place, but Milford will definitely be hosting their annual tournament that has been going on for the last six or seven years.

“It will be May 3 or May 10 this year,” said Weir of the tournament. “We usually do a chicken barbecue and it makes for a good day.”
