Amherst softball works to take step forward this season
With the core of its team back from last year, the Amherst High School softball team will look to
continue to improve this season.
After going 13-11 a year ago, the Falcons are off to a 4-5 start this
season, heading into their matchup at home against Manawa at 4:30 Thursday, April 20.
“We’ve got freshmen playing some critical positions this
year and some sophomores, so we’re an awfully young team,” said Amherst softball head
coach Dale Jastromski. “We’ve just got to keep working through it.
“We’re in what we feel is probably
the top Division 3 conference in the state, and we’ve got to get over that hump
of being in awe of these other teams,” he said. “Because when we do everything
right, we can play with them.”
