The Flames, coached by Olympic champion and one of the sport’s all-time greats in Dot Richardson, took it up a notch last season by reaching an NCAA Regional Final for the first time, and topping a nationally ranked team for the first time since 2007. Senior pitcher Julia DiMartino was a stunning 29-8 last year with a 1.72 ERA and 230 strikeouts in 240.2 innings pitched. The offense is primed by twin sisters Amber and Autumn Bishop, who are entering their junior year and both hit .365 as sophomores. Amber Bishop had 21 doubles and 11 home runs, while Autumn Bishop added 25 doubles and eight home runs.
