Haynes' departure left SA with Marshall as its most experienced pitcher. She earned the team's only win without Haynes in the circle last season.
What could prove to be of the most immediate impact to the Red Dragons is Hebb's proficiency at the plate. As a freshman she hit .456 (47-for-103), ranking third on her team and 11th among all Kanawha Valley players. She added two home runs, and tied for sixth in the Kanawha Valley with 15 doubles while hitting in the No. 8 spot for Hurricane most of the season.
Hebb had two of Hurricane's six hits while going 2-for-3 in the Redskins' 2-0 win over St. Albans in Hurricane in the Region 4 championship game.
A member of the inaugural Daily Mail Kanawha Valley All-Rookie Team, Hebb was narrowly edged by Sissonville freshman pitcher/third baseman Alexee Haynes for KV Rookie of the Year honors. Her departure compounds the graduation losses suffered by the Redskins following their title run.
All-State catcher Linzie Reynolds and starting center fielder Nicole Pierson, who will play at Shenandoah (Va.) University, left the program after beating Wheeling Park in the Class AAA state championship game to cap of a perfect run in the school's first State Tournament appearance.
The team will return Rogers, Davis, All-State outfielder Addie Fullen, second-team All-State infielder Madison Casto, shortstop Cassie Sargent and outfielder Amber Null to its starting lineup. Of that group, Fullen is the only player entering her senior year.
