"Chemil is very capable of having a better season offensively this time around than she did as a rookie. She was recruited as a hitter after a stellar performance at the ASA National Tournament. Chemil is strong, quick and has the ability to play either first base or in the outfield. She pitched her Skyview club to the state high school championship in Washington and will also be available to pitch for us this season."
