Marist softball coach Collen Biebel takes a great deal of pleasure in watching sophomore shortstop Easton Lotus run the bases.

“She’s probably the fastest player I’ve ever coached,” Biebel said. “All she has to do is put the ball in play and I’d say 90 percent of the time she’ll get on base.

“When she gets on base, she’s easy to get in because she’s so fast. Her speed is definitely up from last year. She worked on a lot over the offseason.”
