The 7th grade Yellow Jacket softball team recently completed another successful season. The team competed against teams from Park Rapids, Wadena, Detroit Lakes, and Frazee. As with all seasons go there were many ups and a few downs. These athletes stayed upbeat and positive through them all.

This team worked hard on the fundamentals of softball during practice. We worked on many skills this year including: base running, sliding, fielding, hitting, and playing as a team in the field. As the season went on it was rewarding to see these young ladies transfer what they were learning in practice to game situations.

This team also showed depth and diversity as many of these young ladies played many different positions in the field. This will lead to strong softball in the future as these young ladies will be able to play wherever they asked to at the next level.

This team has the talent and character to continue with the strong tradition of Yellow Jacket softball. We would like to thank the players, the activities staff, and especially the parents for making this a memorable and successful season.
