Notes: Lynn University's softball team looks to break through in 2016 after consecutive 20-win seasons, the first time this has occured since 2009-10.  The squad has a nice balance of youth and experience as the team will mix six upperclassmen with eight underclassmen. Lynn's top-two hitters return in Vazquez and Wright, while three-fourths of the Blue & White infield (Vazquez, Amanda Casillas & Manya Lopez) will also take the field.  The Fighting Knights' will rely on the newcomers in key postions up the middle with Victoria Rios and Hannah Tauscher expected to see significant time behind the dish and in centerfield.  Last season's squad doubled its Sunshine State Conference win total from the previous year and won the most league contests since 2004.
