  • Softball preseason: Keshequa softball young, but talented

  • Coach Martha Blair’s team said so long to some key senior players last year, but she noted, “We have lots of young players working hard to fill those shoes. We have a fine nucleus returning, although we’ll have a few position changes in addition to some new faces. The schedule is tough, but we’re looking to improve again on what we did last year.”
