• Kayla Cooper –McDonough, Ga.: Top recruit with a great attitude; very fast and competitive; will start in the outfield and hit toward the top of the line-up.
• Mallory Long – Macon, Ga.: Will fill a hole in the infield, either short or a corner; Hits well.
• Caroline Conn – Macon, Ga.: Great attitude; will help at third or first; power hitter.
• Lizzie Edwards – Gray, Ga.: Smart infielder.

• Sarah Ray, Macon, Ga.: Triple threat; solid pitcher/outfielder; great speed.

“All of these players are unique and will help out in their own way,” Baruffa said. “I am looking forward to working with them all.”
