CHICKASHA – After two full seasons at USAO, junior Annie Zoch was named one of the Drovers four captains this year.

She said the team will succeed this year because of the closeness the women share after playing together last season.

“Last year, we got a lot more talent, but it was hard to come together as a team and bond together and get that leadership,” she said. “This year, I think we’ll do really well … We’ve really grown together and the freshmen fit in great.”

Zoch, of Mannford, Okla., said the key to the Drover’s game is to rely on the most important aspect of the sport.

“We just let the ball do the work,” she said. “And work together.”

Also serving as team captain are Gabby Martinez, Taylor Fain and Brittany Jay.
