Softball team runners-up in CVL
Head coach Scot Williams is proud of his 10 and under softball team for placing second after falling to Chase County 5-2 at the Cottonwood Valley League tournament July 8 through 14 in Marion.
“They had a good pitcher,” Williams said.
The 11-girl team defeated Council Grove in the first round, 8-0, and Canton-Galva, 14-6, in the second.
“The championship game was supposed to be Friday but was delayed because of rain,” Williams said. “It ended up raining Sunday morning, but it dried up enough to play that evening.”
Williams is having a celebration barbecue Sunday at Central Park to celebrate.
“For many of the girls, this was their first year in the league,” Williams said. “They were really hoping to make it home with either a trophy or a medal. I’m glad they did.”
