The eighth grade softball team had a great season from start to end compiling a record of 9-0-1. The first meeting against Frazee ended in a tie of 3-3. The following week the Yellowjackets came to play and defeated the Hornets 13-1 on their diamond. The team members showed great improvements in base running by completing many double steal and stretching singles into scoring opportunities. Their defense also made great improvements as there were very few errors and the pitching lead to many strikeouts throughout the season. The bats took some time to come to life but as the season progressed the Yellowjackets gained more and more confidence at the plate.

This team is a very hard working group that has potential to do great things in the future. They have great knowledge of the game and applied the skills needed in many different situations. They showed numerous levels of improvement and development. We wish them the best of luck in the future.
