Coaches Comments. “All in all these four games provided lots of learning experiences for our girls. We had some great catches in the outfield, double plays, good pitch placement, executed bunts, steals, slides, dives, and outstanding sportsmanship. At the end of the night, all these girls wanted to so was play more ball. Our next game is Tuesday at 4:00 at South High School.” Coach Stacy Van Nest
