BOARDMAN, OH – YSN recently had the opportunity to sit down and speak to head coach Fred Mootz of the Boardman Lady Spartans. The Lady Spartans have three seniors and two of them are already committed to play at the next level. Coach Mootz also has four juniors who lettered as freshman, and of course like the rest of Ohio spring sports they missed out on last season due to COVID. Coach reminded us that he knows he has high expectations as this year is the 20th anniversary of 2001 Boardman Lady Spartans state championship team, that being said, he understands its always one game at a time. Defense and pitching will lead the way for Boardman and they expect their bats will heat up as the weather does, right in time for the state tournament.
