After three games, Winchester's offense has not got untracked. Cobb had a double and a single while Brock had a single. Alyssa Shaw had a pair of singles.

"Eric's really hitting the ball well", Duey noted. "KC Clapper in her first three at-bats had a flyout, flyout and strikeout". "Hopefully as we keep playing, that confidence will come, especially if we can get a couple of wins".

Steph Nosky and Nicole Grainger both bashed home runs in a five-run fifth inning as the Norton High softball team downed Holliston High 9-3 Wednesday in a Tri-Valley League game. Ball finished the game three for three with five RBIs and just a single short of hitting for the cycle.

"The first win was big for the 'Cats", said Shumaker. "It was one of the first times I've seen a Cass athletic team not show up with any hustle or effort and desire and as a coach it's my fault". But the young, athletic players are showing they can learn quickly. "Now is the time when it really counts going into league and hopefully going into playoffs.I think we're coming together more and more every week".

"Tipton came ready to play and Cass did not at all. We'll get there. There's a long way to go".
