Coleman Looks to Build off Stellar 2017 Season
COLEMAN – The Coleman softball team is hoping to continue the momentum this year after a stellar season in 2017.
Last year, the Comets went 35-7 and made their first semifinal appearance since winning the Division 4 state championship in 2005.
This year, they are hoping to improve on that and keep pushing forward. So far for 2018, they are 2-2.
They were ranked fourth in preseason rankings and have the advantage of only graduating one senior last year, Liz Dana.
“I mean Liz is a big loss. We loved Liz. She was a great catcher, and we’ll miss her a lot this season, but definitely we have good kids coming up to catch,” said MacKenzie Miller, a junior at Coleman.
Coach Chad Klopf, who has been the softball coach for eight years, says he’s had to make some adjustments for this year, but knows the girls are more than capable of taking them in stride. “They know what each other can do, they know what each other’s thinking most of the time,” Klopf said.
Many of their games have been cancelled so far, but their next game is slated for Tuesday, April 24, against Carson City-Crystal.
