Coach Becker on Weaver: "After being promoted to shortstop during the final weeks of last season, Lynsay has solidified the spot her heart is set on. She has amazing range, a quick release, and a glove of gold. Offensively, she brings a fresh confidence behind an already powerful swing that will allow her success in both facets of the game."
