The 2018 roster is led by six seniors: Rachel Bobo, Sydney Booker, Carrigan Fain, Peyton Grantham, Alexis Osorio and Demi Turner. Overall, the team returns 14 players from last season while adding six new faces to the roster, including junior college transfer Courtney Gettins and freshmen Kyra Lockhart, Maddie Morgan, Madison Preston, Kendall Beth Sides and Kaylee Tow.
