THE SKINNY Ashlee Friend’s Lady Red’Dogs are largely a young group, but have a handful of juniors and seniors ready to contribute and provide leadership this spring. Overall, Friend feels Springdale is in a good place and is excited to see how her team performs. Whitnee Patterson is the headliner in Springdale’s order. Patterson hit a two-run homer in Springdale’s loss to Gentry this week and Friend likes her power in the three spot. Braden Meredith has the most experience on the mound for Springdale. Springdale’s underclassmen are likely to earn lots of valuable experience this season.
