The Bears turn to new head coach Ben Garcia, who ran a superior D-II program at Colorado Mesa University for four years with a 169-49 overall record. Fortunately, Northern Colorado is riding a high point as well, tying a program record for wins last year. Nine players are back for 2019, including all-Big Sky first teamer Jordyn Wiatrak, who hit .333 as a junior and drove in 29 runs. Also back for her senior year is pitcher Valerie Vidal, who closed with an 18-12 record last year an authored the program’s first 7-inning no-hitter in a win over Seton Hall. Beefing up the squad from the underclassmen ranks is sophomore Mady Young, who had a team-high 21 runs and stole 12 bases.
