This year the team is aiming even higher.

The Indians were expecting back seven starters from last year's team, and coach Jodi Stone is banking on that experience and white-hot momentum to take the team to greater heights this season.

Their first home game is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 4 p.m., against Woodbridge.
