The Shoreline Community College Softball Team starts its 2010 season on Wednesday at home against Highline Community College. The Lady Dolphins play their home games at Shoreview Park, just down the hill on Innis Arden Way from the college.

The SCC squad is coming off a very successful season in 2009, as Shoreline finished 2nd in the NWAACC Northern Region and qualified for the NWAACC Softball Championship for the second consecutive year. The Dolphins will be led by 5 sophomore starters from the 2009 squad. Camille Depew (at bat) will anchor the outfield in center, Moani Durant is at shortstop and Tiffany Baisden at second for their second years starting at those positions, Erika Potts anchors third and Erin O’Hara will be behind the plate at catcher when she is not in the outfield. 

 Shoreline will be young on the mound, with three freshman pitchers starting, Kimberly Kocik, Dani Carver and Lindsey Walter will all be battling for innings pitched as the season starts. Other new freshman on the team are Laice Dedrick, outfielder, Andrea Mullan, shortstop, Melissa Kruse, first baseman and Whitney McFarland, catcher. Tiffany Gammon and Ana Haberman join from the Lady Dolphin basketball team to round out the squad.

Coach Lance Swehla starts his fourth season as head coach and has developed the squad from a below .500 team, to almost the top of the region. There are real expectations that this season the Lady Dolphins will garner their first Northern Region championship and a banner in the SCC gym.
