The roster of 12 is rounded out by a predominantly local squad of freshman, including Grace Crawford, of Marshall/Marshall High School; Hannah Day, of Pennfield/Pennfield High School; Kenya House, of Riverdale/St. Louis High School; Hannah Lenz, of Battle Creek/Pennfield High School; Jessica Martinovich, of Battle Creek/Lakeview High School; Megan Milbrandt, of Pellston/Pellston High School; Alexandria Owen, of Hastings/Hastings High School; and Kelsey Snowball, of Battle Creek/Calhoun Christian School.
