Saints Softball Off Running in First Week of Practice

Posted: Updated:

The bats are flying here at day two of the Carroll Saints softball practices, as the girls try to keep up their hot hitting from fall ball, where they went 6-2, and batted .390 as a team.

"If the fall is any indication of what this year will come it's going to be a pretty good one," said Saints head coach Aaron Jackson. "It's just going to be those learning experiences."

"I'm actually really confident in our bats," said Saints sophomore center fielder Paige Blake. "We practice that a lot, and we showed a lot with our sticks, and it was actually really impressive to watch that."

This year marks year one in the Cascade Conference for the Saints, who are thrilled to see some different competition.

"Our returners are going to be happy to be playing somebody else," said Jackson. "We played University of Great Falls 12 times last year, it'll be good to have a new opponent each and ever week."

"I feel like we are going to be able to come together as a team, and play hard as a team, and that's all we really need to come out on top," said Saints freshman outfielder TJ Rucker.

Now the girls are stuck practicing inside for at least the next couple of weeks with all the snow on their fields that has made it kind of impossible to be out there. But they're hoping they can at least hit it once before they head to the road to take on San Diego Christian on February 19th.
