9 turn out for Softball2021 SOFTBALL
There are just 9 Lady Pirates turned out for Softball this Spring, just barely enough to field a team.
They are hoping to recruit at least a couple more just in case.
Seniors out this year are Madison Shears and Eve Uhlenkott.
Juniors are Mackenzie Key, Josie Remacle, Gracie Farr and Laney Forsmann.
Sophomores are Riley Enneking and Tara Schlader.
Ember Martin is the lone freshman.
Jeff Martin will continue as coach this year with Steve Wilson as assistant. Sky Wilson, a former Prairie player will also help coach on a volunteer basis.
They were to have played Culdesac Tuesday, March 16 but neither team had enough practices. It looks like Thursday’s game at Lapwai will be the season opener.
The softball schedule is at the bottom of this page.
