It's no secret having one great pitcher can carry a softball team throughout a season.

But what if a team doesn't have a true No. 1 starter? More offense.

"I don't want to jinx myself, but up and down the lineup this is the best offensive group that I've had since I've been here," Jefferson City head coach Lisa Dey.

The Lady Jays, who open the season at 4 p.m. today at Lincoln Field against defending Class 4 state champion Troy, have a void to fill in the circle.
