With the glory days of Mike Rappl now in the past, Canisius will strive to establish themselves in the MAAC under new head coach Kim Griffin. The Golden Griffins lose a number of players, not all to graduation, and enter the season with only 14 on their roster. Gone is pitcher Jen Consaul after a fine career; the Griffs will depend on a pair of freshmen (Madi Weathers and Erika Mackie) in the circle this season. Both performed very well during fall ball. If they can carry that into the season, Canisius has offensive punch at the top of their lineup that would give them the chance to return to the tournament for the first time since 2012.
