Corpus Christi (Kiii Sports) - Hundreds of softball players across South Texas are beginning their first week of UIL-sanctioned practice.

The Moody Trojans open the season as one of the favorites to advance deep into the playoffs come May and June. Moody returns all but one starter from a team that made it to the regional semifinals. Coach Paula Salinas also welcomes back two more starters who missed last year with injuries.

As you can surmise, depth will not be a problem for the Trojans.
