Softball season under way

“Our infield play has been in­
consistant. And it is probably
the coach’s fault,” said Paul
Fiskum, women’s softball
“We need to work on it. The
infield play has not been as
good as it could be,” comment-
ted Fiskum. Whereas the
“whole outfield is doing really
good with Wendy Morton, Kim
Stewart, Sue Richardson and
Jackie Butch.”
The hitting for the women
has so far been inadequate ac­
cording to Fiskum. “We need
to hit more.” Though Sue
Richardson is batting 6 for 13
with a batting average of .462.
Along with Richardson, Angie
Downey is 8 for 18 at the plate
with a .444 batting average.
Kim Stewart is holding her own
with 13 for 34 at the plate and
.382 batting average.
