BIRDSBORO -

A trio of Berks County softball teams hit the 20 win mark last season. The Daniel Boone Blazers can be counted among them. The defending Berks I champions have the talent to hit that milestone again this season.

Boone got all the way to the District 3 championship game and the state quarterfinals a year ago.

Pitcher Bekah Slattery leads a talented core of veterans back for the 2014 campaign.

But as with most new seasons, there are some fresh faces on hand.

So far, the team feels like it has done a good job of getting those younger players in the mix.
