The girls softball team has gone yet another week without their long overdue win. Last Tuesday the girls took on Sauk Centre at home. The girls do have strong hitting going for them.

"The girls need to work on base running and making it around the bases," said coach Murrey Rafferty.

The Bulldogs defense was also good, contributing to the close game with Sauk Centre.

Last Thursday the Lady Bulldogs traveled to Albany to take on the Huskies.

"We were playing good ball. It's a lot of the fine tuning things that kill us," said Coach Rafferty.

The Bulldogs also suffered an injury to Jen Roberg. Gretchen Ziemer was brought in and played well for the Bulldogs.

For the final game of the week, the lady greens took on Long Prairie-Grey Eagle at home on Friday.
