TEAMS TO WATCH:

NEW MEXICO STATE
The Aggies have dominated the WAC and look to continue that tradition this season. Long time hitting coach, Cat Heifner, rejoins the squad after spending the 2017-2018 season with the Minnesota. NMSU is also led by FPN Preseason All-American and National Player of the Year Watch List selection, Kelsey Horton.

CAL BAPTIST
Cal Baptist moves up to Division I this season so the obvious question is how will the program fair in their first season? Should be fun to watch!

GRAND CANYON
GCU has been slowly and steadily making moves and improving: they finish 55 in the RPI just a few years ago (2016). The Lopes have a handful of tools (including speed and pitching depth) that could cause problems for opponents and help them rise even higher.

SEATTLE U
The Redhawks have also quietly been improving and rising in the WAC. Last year there was a bit of a drop off for them, so can they rebound in 2019 and get back to that upward trajectory?
