JV and C team games March 27 begin the season for Coach Joanne Calvin and her Gardner Edgerton softball teams.
Calvin has been busy the past three weeks preparing the Blazers for the season. She has witnessed an excellent attitude in pre season workouts.
“All the teams have looked great and we look forward to the season,” said Calvin. “Inclement weather has kept us from outside practice but we have made a lot of progress with our inside workouts in the gym and multi purpose room. The kids have been working hard and will be ready to start the season.”
On the varsity level, GEHS will be led by six seniors. Leading the way are Jackie Sylva, Brittnee Willard (Park University), Shelby Kaberline ( Fort Scott), MacKenzie Skeens (JCCC), Tara Dodson (Ft. Scott) and L’orien Pacheco.
Junior Haley McGuire returns to fill a key utility role . Sophomore transfer Kiana Baderdeen and freshmen Sydney Anderson and Kara Pine have looked promising in pre season sessions.
The JV season opens March 27, 3:30 at St. Thomas Aquinas while the C team travels to Olathe East for a March 27 , 4:15 first pitch. The JV and varsity host BV West on April 4 ,4:30 p.m.
