Mavericks Softball Jersey #16 was worn by all three Cain sisters- Cat Cain '07, Emily Cain '09, and Anna Cain '13.
Entering the 2014 Varsity Softball season, the Mavericks would take the field with out a member of the Cain family for the first time in 11 seasons. Catherina ’07, Emily ’09, and Anna ’13 all played Maverick softball, and each one donned jersey number 16 as varsity players. Cat played in the outfield, Emily played first base and Anna’s spot was behind the dish.
Catherina and Emily were varsity members for 3 years. Anna played varsity all four years and won an SPC Championship in her senior season. Emily and Anna were captains during their senior seasons.
This season the number 16 is worn by catcher Alex Jones ’17, who bats sixth in the line up. Alex reminds the coaches in many ways of the Cain trio. Alex is tall, athletic and coachable. She hits with power and enjoys learning about the game, and she goes out of the way to make her teammates better, just like a Cain.
