Great Falls High Softball Looking to Repeat as State Champions

Posted: Updated:

Winning a championship is hard. Doing it twice in a row is even harder. Last year, Great Falls High ended their season on top of the mountain as state champions. And this season, they hope to stay on top.

"Our goal is to win to state again like we did last year. We're just going to focus on that the whole season and that will determine whether we will be good or not again but hopefully we will be with nine seniors coming back so I think we'll have a good shot of winning state again," said Lacey Mertes, Senior Pitcher.

Nine seniors - that's a lot of experience and leadership. Add that on top of knowing you can win it all and you got a team who's confident and determined.

"There's like no other team with that many seniors and that gives us a lot of leadership. I think we have a lot of confidence. We know how it feels to win and we like that feeling and so we want to keep winning and do good," said Brooke Gruntowicz, Senior 1B.

Bison head coach Mike Coleman knows he has a good team but says the key to getting back to the state championship is their offense.

"Hitting. I think our pitching is going to hold its own but we have to hot like we did last year. We hit real well, especially in the state tournament and this year we lost 2 good hitters so we have to fill those spots but if we fill those spots I think we'll do really well," said head coach Mike Coleman.

The Bison will begin their title defense this Saturday as they open their season with the jamboree where they will begin their climb to get back to the top of the mountain.
