No.6 Kirkwood softball team expects big things

Kirkwood softball coach Joe Yegge needed to replenish his roster this season, so he went out and signed seven players who were all-state in high school last year.

They are part of a talented freshman class that includes 14 players who were either all-state, all-conference or all-region in 2012.

They'll join five sophomores who helped the Eagles compile a 42-13 record last year and finish seventh at the national tournament.

Kirkwood was ranked No.6 in the preseason poll this season and will open the campaign with a doubleheader against Grand View Friday night in the Rochester Dome in Rochester, Minn.
