Baldwin softball returns to diamond
BALDWIN — Baldwin did not have a softball team last season because of a lack of numbers.
But coach Sonya Lund, who takes over the program, is working to get her team ready for a scheduled road game at Buckley on Friday.
“We’ve been outdoors once,” she said at a practice indoors on Monday.
There’s also been several breaks in the action from spring break, intersession (voluntary attendance) and other related activities.
“I’ve got a regular turnout of nine to 12 girls showing up to practice and 17 on the roster,” she said. “It’s hard with intersession. I’m still getting to know them. We have a very young team. A lot of my freshmen from volleyball are playing. We working with Monique Rowland on her pitching. She is a freshman. I’m working with a lot of freshmen, trying to develop a program again.”
Senior Riley Drilling, a pitcher, has been injured and her status is unknown. But Lund is eager to get the team outside.
Not having had a team last year presents its challenges, Lund said.
