The Mustangs completed its third season at the 16U level and are known for its offensive power and speed.
"It is a very talented group and we decided to play 16U instead of 14U a few years ago to gain experience," said coach, Keith Eck. "While from a win lost standpoint (someone) may not think it was right decision but from a development standpoint the girls have benefited dramatically and we are starting to see the payoff."
The decision to play up over time has developed a mature, battle-tested, close knit roster of experienced student-athletes who compiled an impressive list of finishes in 2018: 9th at IDT in Colorado, 9th at USA Elite Select, and made an appearance in the JO Cup.
New to the roster for 2018-2019 will be the addition of 2021, Ashley Archuletta. She is a true utility player out of New Mexico who will hit for power or speed from the left side.
Ellee Eck (2020 CF/SS/3B) Wichita State - "Ellee hits from left side as she used to be a slapper. Now hits for power but still possesses speed to be a slapper. She mainly plays center field for us but will play short and 3rd as well. "
Sophia Buzard (2020, OF) KU - "Hits from left side for power but can beat you with speed as well."
Tatum Long (2020) Uncommitted - "Long is our pure power hitter. She is out of Oklahoma and stayed up in Wichita last summer to workout with us. She is receiving a lot of interest from D1 schools as she is now becoming a consistent (homerun) threat at the plate"
Abby Gordon (2020, C) Uncommitted - "A 5’11” catcher who is a physical presence behind the plate. She to has a powerful bat."
Andy Edwards (2020, 3B) Uncommitted - "Edwards is the leader In the infield. She is out of Louisiana and has been coming up to Wichita to play for the last 4 years."
Kyla Eck (2021, 2B) Uncommitted - "Another slapper turned power hitter" for the Mustangs.
Rylee Rusk (2021, SS) Uncommitted - "Rusk joins Kyla in middle infield both are 5’10 athletic kids that hit for power or can beat you with speed."
