Once again, the West Central girls’ softball team found itself with a first-round exit from the Regional playoffs.

East Buchanan defeated the Blue Devils, 7-2, on Tuesday, July 5; however, another early exit shouldn’t overshadow the true progress the program continues to make under head coach Nick Robinson.

For the first time in recent history, the softball team finished with a winning record in Upper Iowa Conference play. It swept two conference opponents this year — Edgewood-Colesburg, for the second year in a row, and Postville.

Too many 2-out hits doom softball

 

Everyone at the Class 3A playoff game between NFV and New Hampton knew this was going to be a close play at the plate. The TigerHawks’ Marrah Burrack tried to score from third on   an infield grounder, but the Chickasaw first baseman’s relay to home in the fourth inning resulted in an inning-ending out. Burrack looked shocked at the call, and NFV head coach Bob Lape protested. However the umpire, who was in perfect position, stood by his call. (Jerry Wadian photo)
