The Bison have become the premier team in the Summit League, winning nine of the past 10 league tournaments to become a fixture in the NCAA playoffs, and they had the tools to beat No. 10 LSU, 1-0, in March. The most experienced pitcher coming back is senior KK Leddy, who threw 114 innings last year and won seven games. Senior Zoe Stavrou did terrific work last year, hitting .314, and there’s some real punch in the lineup with senior Vanessa Anderson (team-best eight home runs and 31 RBI). The roster got some extra attention in the offseason with the addition of transfers Cara Beatty (Iowa) and Sam Koehn (Marshall), both of whom have three years of eligibility remaining.
