The Blue Devils, believe it or not, didn’t even have a softball program until this spring, so their inaugural campaign impressed by any measure. Leading hitter Raine Wilson is back; the junior hit .371 and had 23 extra-base hits last year. Duke has some options at pitcher as well, as sophomore Amelia Wiercioch had a sub-2.00 ERA and won 11 games and classmate Peyton St. George came through with eight wins and an ERA of 1.79. Head coach Marissa Young was a three-time All-America selection as a pitcher at the University of Michigan and was named the 2002 Big Ten Pitcher of the Year and 2003 Big Ten Player of the Year.
