Here's a team-by-team look at the upcoming 2017 high school softball season and what to expect in Class 3A. With the 2017 high school baseball season getting underway this week in what should be another fantastic season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every 3A team in the state with information on what to expect this season. The region rankings are based on coaches' preseason projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team. There are seven new head softball coaches in 3A this year: Jeff Anderson (Richfield), Ryan Smith (Hurricane), Michael Anderson (Ridgeline), Kacee McArthur (Desert Hills), Billy Peterson (Morgan), Sharon Christensen (North Sanpete) and Marissa Lowry (Tooele). Here's a region-by-region look at all 22 teams in 3A.

Coach comment: "We lost five seniors to graduation from last year's team. All five had college scholarships, so we have some big shoes to fill, but we have some excellent players coming back. Mercedes Call is one of the best hitters to ever play at Bear River. She had a 29-game hitting streak as a freshman and 25 as a sophomore. She hit .465 last year. Kapri Toone was the 3A state MVP last year. She hit .459 last year and hit .733 in state. Linsey will be a three-year starter. Taylor Fox had an outstanding year last year as catcher. Abby Giles has played a lot of varsity ball, so she will be solid both as a pitcher and at first base. Dacia Hobbs had a great year last year, and we expect the same this year."
