The Lady Tigers will go into territory never before charted by Prince -- as this is her first high school coaching gig -- but with experience leading the way. Bailey Saye will take the number one pitching role from Coats, and Prince has lauded her starter's talent and experience.
But, there is a slight worry for the Lady Tigers when it comes to pitching depth.
"We're still working on our number two pitcher," Prince said. "It's different for Tuttle, because they've usually been strong in depth in pitching."
While Prince is please with what she has inherited by taking over at Tuttle, she admits the next few days will involve learning more about her team, and vice versa, ahead of the new season that begins Aug. 13 against Linsday.
"We've practiced a little bit over the summer, but not everyone was there all of the time," she said. "I think all of them are trying to get to know me and I'm still getting to know them. This is a great group of kids. They're hard workers and do what they need to do to get better as individuals and as a team. That has impressed me the most."
