A new season started for the Bison Softball team last Monday, March 12.
The weather was unusually warm and the girls dug right into the field for practice after school. As a new season starts, the team looks to repeat as Mississippi 8 Conference Champions.
Last year, after a bye because of the high seeding from the 20-4 record, the Bison team won their first section game, but ended up losing 1-0 to Prior lake and 7-4 to Mankato to wrap the season up. Expectations are high for the new year.
“We’re going to mix it up a lot this year to see what best fits with all the new players,” said Junior Bailey Braatz. “But we expect nothing less than last season, we expect better.”
Players have a good feeling about the the dugout and are preparing to go just as far as the previous season.
“There is plenty of talent on our team this year,” said Junior Maddie Loomis. “It should work out to be a good season, we have good personalities on our roster and there is great chemistry there.”
Games are approaching quickly, with the first game coming on Tuesday, April 10, and the team in preparing for another solid season.
