January 28, 1999

Columbus, Ohio – Seniors Jaime Chenevey (Wooster, Ohio), Natalie Kratzer (Ashland, Ohio) and Cheryl Palaroan (Reno, Nev.) and junior Renae Weigel (Coldwater, Ohio) have been named captains for the 1999 Ohio State softball team.

“I expect our captains to represent and reflect the ideals we want out of our student-athletes,” Ohio State head coach Linda Kalafatis said. “Natalie, Renae, Jaime and Cheryl all possess excellent work ethics, they are academically focused and are solid people. They characterize what our program stands for in every sense of the word.”

The Buckeyes open the 1999 season against Cal-State Fullerton, Feb. 11 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
