Coach Rittman on Anna Beardman:
"Anna will be looked upon this season to provide leadership in the outfield. She is a very gifted player who has great speed and instincts for the game. She is a great outfielder and has improved every year defensively. Offensively, she is very versatile, as she can slap from the left side of the plate and hit for power from the right."
