Less than a year ago, Francesca Enea and Charlotte Morgan were leading their respective college teams to a spot in the Women’s College World Series, now both find themselves in the dugout sharing their passion and insights to local high school softball players.
Enea led the Gators to their third straight World Series appearance while Morgan led them to two out of sixth appearances in Oklahoma City. Both Enea and Morgan play for the defending NPF champions, USSSA Pride.
This spring Morgan will be the assistant coach at Dr. Phillips High School and Enea at Paul J. Hagerty High School. Both teams are strong contenders in their respective districts. Dr. Phillips’ and Hagerty High Schools season opener will be on February 5 on the road. Enea, Morgan, and the USSSA Pride will start the defense of their NPF championship in June.
