Avery Benedict-Swamp is finishing her first season with the team. She plans to attend Keuka College to study psychology and criminal justice. Her mother is Jamie.

"Her favorite softball memory is Sierra wiping out in the mud going for a ball," Coach Elizabeth Durfee wrote in remarks she gave at the recognition ceremony.

Sierra Boardway is finishing her second season with the team. She was a scholar athlete and on the Academic All-Northern Team last season. She plans to attend North Country Community College in the fall to study nursing. Her parents are Tammy and Mike Boardway.

Lauren Martin is in her fourth season with the Shamrocks. She was Academic All-Northern in 2016 and 2017, and a scholar athlete last season. She plans to attend SUNY Oswego to study zoology. Her parents are Shawn and Andrea Martin.

"Her favorite softball memory is exchanging many chirps, pranks and laughs with her fave catcher Carlie Cartier," the coach wrote.

Katrina "KO" Oakes is in her fourth varsity softball season. She plans to attend SUNY Cobleskill to study agricultural business. Her parents are Gerry and Kori Oakes.

"Her favorite softball memory is watching Sierra face plant twice in one practice. As well as being throwing partners with Lauren, and her hit against Malone," the coach wrote.
