Coaches comment: “We are glad softball is here. The program, continuing to grow, has finally gained some experience. We have some returning players, which is helpful, and we’re very excited to have some brand new players that are picking up the game quickly. We are still small in numbers; however, our heart is big. Our school is small and our girls play multiple sports, but they are motivated to bring home another conference win, second only to serving the Lord.”
