The Pioneer softball team kicked off the 2010 season today at Lindbergh High School, facing a feisty Howell Central team. It was a beautiful night, and although the Pioneers came out on the losing end, it was great to get the first-game jitters out of the way. There was some fine pitching, excellent fielding, and a good all-around effort. It's clear that these girls are prepared to put in the work necessary to improve, and I STILL think this is the breakout sport of the fall. Hang in there, ladies! Keep working hard, playing together, and having fun!
