Deaton on Otte: "She's our right side and probably has the heaviest arm on the team. She can hit a ball and when it's hit if you dig it, it's going to hurt. She is becoming a very good blocker which is something that she needed to work on and she did during the spring. Right now she is our mainstay on the right side."
